A stunning 18k yellow gold genuine and natural Angel skin coral necklace. While the price of coral continues to climb, finding a necklace of very large natural corals is becoming increasingly difficult.
The necklace is a wearable length of just under 19 inches. (18 inches plus the clasp which is just over 3/4.") The clasp is 18k yellow gold which is marked, tested, and shown as such in photos. This clasp contains a flawless and large true pink blush angel skin coral cabochon of very large size measuring 16mm x 12mm with its total measuring 19mm x 15mm. (This is not counting the tongue closure.) You may choose to wear the clasp in the back or as I have shown on the side.
The necklace contains a total of 33 glorious and large genuine and natural angel skin corals ranging in size from 13.5mm Down to the last bead on each side which is the smallest at 12mm. Average size of all beads would come in at about 12.75mm.
The 24 smooth corals measuring from 13mm to 12.5mm. Beautifully matched in size.
9 carved corals measuring (1) 13.5mm center coral getting ever so slightly smaller to the back of necklace with the very smallest of 12mm of which is only the last one on each side.
The color also are of a pale blush to pinky peach in color with some beads having a few more splashes of color than others. The necklace was beautifully strung on silk, perfectly knotted, and well laid out to show off the color displays as well as with the beautiful and well matched carved corals also contained in this necklace. There will be no denying to anyone exactly what this necklace is. I actually had people gasp when I wore it exclaiming, "On My, Is that a real coral necklace!! ? And I was please to reply, why yes it is!
With the naked eye, and i will say I really had to look, I can find one fissure line. It does not run the length of bead. I also observed few tiny dot imperfections. ( not the 2 black dots in photos, sorry those were dust I missed from the necklace stand) I have also looked with a 30 times loupe which I know is crazy, but I just do. With this magnification I do see a few beads with faint fine line at the drill hole, do not run the length of the bead nor do they compromise the bead in any way. You really have to look for these and they would never be noticed when wearing.
Pure elegance and true treasure from the sea. A very nice price on such a beautiful coral necklace of such a rare and desirable size that is continuing to increase in price as well as demand.
Weight is a very heavy 95.3 grams. My price of $1,050.00 with free shipping and insurance is firm.
