Stunning Mediterranean carved coral pendant in 14K setting!!
This deeply and intricately carved piece of coral is in a deep, rich color and very masterfully executed with wonderful three dimensional qualities. Better yet, it is surrounded by tiny pearls (a very typically Italian design technique). The coral is delicately pierced where it compliments the design and each petal and leaf is beautifully formed. The gold has triangular shaped prongs to hold it in and to further echo the floral motif.
The condition is excellent with all pearls intact and no chips to the coral. The carver kept the natural occlusion visible only from the reverse. There is a loop at the center top to receive a bail.
The entire piece measures 1 3/4" x 1 1/8" x 1/2" deep.
