A stunning necklace 4 glorious strands of very dense genuine natural Angel skin coral weighing a luxurious 102 grams. End to end this necklace measures 23 inches long. Due to the thickness it does wear as though it was shorter as it lies more curved along the body than falling into a V as chains do. It fits me above the line of a normal top and lies against my skin not clothing.
The 14k gold clasp and ring are very large and what I would consider a high end closure adornment. I was unable to find any gold hallmarks on the clasp and ring but it has been tested and confirmed as 14k yellow gold. The clasp alone measures nearly 3/4's of an inch wide or in mm 18mm wide and is 4.2mm thick. The ring and bail measure a total of 28.5mm long. You can wear this necklace with the clasp in the front center and even hang your favorite pendant. This is also designed to wear the clasp on the side which was my personal preference. A very elegant look. This would have been an expensive gold closure.
The coral beads are quite a large size measuring 5.2 to 5.5mm which are large for a piece such as this as I have usually found them to be 3 or 4mm. There are a total of 4 glorious strands. All of the coral is genuine and natural. This is not pressed or reconstructed coral.
The 4 Coral strands are strung on silk and are very secure and taunt, it has not stretched out. The only item I find to note, upon magnification I see that the gold bail ring has been rubbed, I am assuming to test the gold. It is not noticeable unless you go looking for it which I did with a loupe but I wanted to mention. It is on the ring not the clasp.
