This bracelet is unforgettable, just like Her.
Combining top quality natural coral and seed pearls, this multi strand coral bead bracelet is a timeless design with an extraordinary 14K gold clasp. Weighing in at just under 50 grams, this angelic beauty is sure to steal her heart.
This 1960's beauty features three strands of natural angel skin coral beads and a grand cabochon clasp. The bracelet is comprised of 66 beads that range in size from 7.2-7.5mm, with most in the 7.2mm range. The three strands measure 7/8" wide and, when clasped, 7-3/4" long. There are three 14K gold spacer bars that snugly keep the three strands in line. The beads are currently knotted in between, but we are happy to restring without knots for a bit shorter total length.
The clasp itself is a spectacular focal point. It is crafted of 14K yellow gold, fitted with a large cabochon and surrounded by natural seed pearls. It locks securely with a wide tongue and groove closure. There is also a figure 8 safety clasp for added security. The entire clasp setting measures 27x22mm (1-1/16" tall by 7/8" wide) by over 1/2" thick. The cabochon itself measures 19.4x14.5mm and is gallery set. A halo of forty-six 2mm seed pearls are wired around the bezel's base. A 2mm link chain completes the outer surround. The back of the clasp is crafted from a solid sheet of 14K yellow gold that is hand pierced in an elaborate floral pattern. It is hallmarked "14K". This is a substantial bracelet, weighing in at 46.6 grams, more than many coral necklaces.
The coral is natural, undyed and not treated in any manner. The oval cabochon and beads are polished to a nice gloss and exhibit no inherent surface fissures. The stately cabochon and beads offer a uniform soft blush hue. Not pink or cream, but a delicate blush, like the skin of an angel, which adds a youthful glow to any complexion. When magnified, the cabochon is a completely solid hue and only a handful of beads exhibit graduated areas of blush.
The bracelet is in superb condition with no damage to the cabochon or beads. All surfaces are smooth and we see no inherent lines beneath the surface in any of the beads. The clasp is in excellent condition with no damage or evidence of prior repairs. All of the original 46 pearls are in place and their soft ivory hue accents the coral very nicely. The pearl surround is in perfect condition with no loss of pearls. The tongue and groove closure operates nicely, including its release button, clasp tongue and receiver and the figure 8 safety catch. A definitive click can still be heard when the clasp engages.
This blushing beauty will be delivered in an elegant presentation case, perfect for gift giving and storage. A copy of our easy coral care instructions will be included, to keep the coral blooming in all of its glory for generations to come.
