Take her breath away with these tantalizing dark red beauties. With beads carved from flawless, top quality Corsican coral, this double strand coral bead necklace is absolutely amazing. Our photos do not begin to capture the depth of color of this spectacular variety of Mediterranean coral.
This magnificent double strand Corsican coral bead necklace is crafted of natural coral which was harvested from the grottoes along the coast of Corsica. It features 130 perfectly matched coral beads of the finest quality. Weighing in at 78.8 grams, this necklace offers the desirable dark red hue with nicely sized beads in the 6.5-9.8mm range.
The beads are perfectly matched full cut rounds with flawless finishes that were polished to a brilliant high gloss. The two strands offer exemplary lengths of 21" (63 beads) and 22" (67 beads). The necklace closes with a 12.5x14mm 18K yellow gold clasp with a 7.5mm Corsican oxblood cabochon at center. The clasp features a secure tongue and groove closure, along with a figure 8 safety catch.
Please note that the pictured earrings have sold and are no longer available, so don't let this beautiful necklace get away.
The coral beads are natural and untreated and not dyed or waxed to achieve their dynamic and uniform hue. Actual hue is darker than our photos may reflect. The color is a dark red with brown to purple undertones. Please see our comparison photo with this necklace grouped with other Sardinian red necklaces. This photo was taken in natural sunlight, indoor, with this necklace at far right.
There are no white veins, spots or even black enzyme spots on the surfaces. These beads are the desirable full cut rounds, carved to perfection and polished to a high gloss sheen. The beads exhibit no natural fissures or cracks. We estimate the age of the beads to be 1970-1980. These strands are new old stock and in pristine, unworn condition. This necklace has been freshly strung in our shop with our signature hand tied method that gives you more coral to the inch, security without slippage or kinks.
The light refraction of natural coral is like no other gemstone, creating an inner glow that blooms against any skin tone. The deep blood red hue of Corsican oxblood coral never fails to mesmerize one and all. Born of nature and respectfully crafted by hand in Torre del Greco, this necklace is truly a treat for both eye and soul. And sure to cure anything that ails her.
This magnificent necklace will be delivered in a lovely presentation case, perfect for gift giving and storage, along with a copy of our easy coral care instructions.
