Time to get glowing. Spring is a comin'.
Looking for a little something that radiates just the right touch of elegance without being stuffy? This lovely 14K double strand coral bead necklace offers classic good looks with its double strand design in a timeless length that beautifully frames the face and accommodates any neckline.
The necklace is comprised of 108 natural white angel skin coral beads. It is a classic two strand design with the longest strand at 15-1/2 inches and the shorter at 15-1/4 inches. Elegantly encircling the neck and nestling right at the base of the neck hollow, this length beautifully showcases the feminine neckline. This is a length that is all about accenting you, not the particular neckline of the clothing you are wearing. Try it, you will love it.
The beads are uniform in size at 6.4mm. They are full round cuts with a uniform winter white hue. The necklace is fitted with a round 14K coral cabochon clasp that measures 13.8mm (just over 1/2 inch) by 7mm thick. This is a round box clasp fitted with a 10.6mm white coral cabochon in a clawed gallery bezel. The clasp has a tongue and groove closure as well as a figure 8 safety catch for added security. It is hallmarked "585" for 14K yellow gold. The necklace weighs 42.0 grams.
The coral is natural and not bleached, dyed or treated in any manner. The beads are a pure white and polished to a bright, glossy sheen. Only when magnified do we see a handful of tiny blush spots that are not visible with the naked eye. The coral surfaces are clean and free of visible surface fissures. When magnified only, we locate only one bead with a shallow surface pit, and one bead with a small beneath the surface growth plate at the bead hole. These are not visible with the naked eye. We estimate age of this necklace to be around 1965. It has lived a wonderful life and is in superb condition.
The clasp is in excellent condition with the cabochon tightly in its setting with no missing claws. The cabochon is polished to a glossy sheen and is free of cracks or chips. The clasp closes securely with a definitive click. It has a press release button that is also in excellent working order. The figure 8 clasp is secure and still slips tightly over its anchor bead.
We love the soft white hue and purity of this coral. This necklace length perfectly frames the face and accents its owner with no need to match a specific clothing neckline. Its high gloss sheen is indeed the icing on this fabulous white delight.
It will be delivered in a lovely presentation case, perfect for gift giving and storage, along with a copy of our easy coral care instructions.
