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 and earring suite is absolutely amazing.
We are pleased to have this opportunity to offer a rare double strand Corsican coral bead necklace. 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 130 beads are perfectly matched full cut rounds with flawless finishes that were polished to a high gloss. The two strands offer the exemplary lengths of 21" (63 beads) and 22" (67 beads) that were seldom available. The necklace features a 12.5x14mm 18K yellow gold clasp with a 7.5mm Corsican oxblood cabochon at center. The clasp has a secure tongue and groove closure, along with a figure 8 safety catch.
The earrings measure 1-3/4" long and weigh 5.3 grams. The design features two matching coral beads measuring 6.6mm and 9.6mm. They are fitted with 18K pierced horseshoe leverbacks, 5.5mm gold bead caps, a 6mm gold rondelle at center and a 3mm gold bead at bottom.
The total weight of both necklace and earrings is 84.1 grams, or 54.08 dwt.
The coral beads are natural and untreated and not dyed or waxed to achieve their dynamic and uniform hue. 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, secure and without slippage, and no kinks. The earrings are also in as new condition, crafted to perfection.
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 and earring suite is truly a treat from the deep that will enchant at first sight.
This magnificent necklace and earring suite will be delivered in a lovely presentation case, perfect for gift giving and storage, along with a copy of our easy coral care instructions.
