Add some sizzle to your day....
This necklace is comprised of natural salmon red coral and 14K yellow gold beads and it measures 15.5" long. There are 45 coral beads, 6-8.06mm, with fourteen 6mm 14K yellow gold beads. We estimate age of this necklace to be 1950's to early 1960's, so these gold beads are extremely thick and without the dents that modern gold beads sustain. The necklace closes with a 14K trigger clasp that is stamped "14K". The necklace weighs 22.6 grams.
The length of this necklaces strikes just below the neck hollow, and would be considered "collar" length. This timeless length beautifully accents the feminine neckline and is as perfect with a button down blouse as it is with a strapless gown. Think Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly, Jackie Kennedy....
The coral beads are a uniform dark salmon color and they are carved in the classic off round "antique" shape. This is Mediterranean coral. It is dense, supple and polished to a glossy sheen. The beads surfaces are smooth and without inherent fissures or pits. Actual hue is a deep salmon which brings a youthful glow to all complexion types. There are no white spots or veins. Our last photo reflects the length but not the hue. Actual color is darker with the coral shiny, not dull.
All is in excellent condition with no damage to the coral or gold beads. The clasp is in excellent working condition. The necklace has just been restrung and is ready to wear upon arrival. All of our necklaces are hand knotted with no slippage, giving you more coral to the inch and a uniform lay without kinks that will last for years.
This beautiful necklace is timeless and full of charm and grace. It is an excellent gift idea for any occasion.
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.
