Savor the essence of a Summer rose garden all year with this strand of natural coral roses.
This necklace captures the essence of fragrant white roses in full bloom with its uniformly large 9.5mm beads that are each delicately hand carved. The coral is natural, undyed and untreated with heat or bleach. The glow of pristine natural coral is unparalleled and oh so addictive. At 24.5 inches long, this lovely 14K carved coral bead necklace makes a wonderful addition to any woman's jewelry wardrobe.
This necklace is comprised of 43 uniformly sized beads, ranging 9.6mm to 9.8mm. The beads are hand carved in a rose petal motif with 44 smoothly polished 5-5mm beads used as spacers, and strung in an alternating size design. The larger beads are a soft white angel skin coral with slight blushes here and there, while the smaller beads are a pure soft white that is perfectly matched to the carved rose beads. The necklace is finished with a 5/8" 14K yellow gold carved rose clasp that closes with a tongue and groove closure along with a figure 8 safety clasp for added security. The carved rose cabochon measures 14.5mm wide by 13mm tall. It is peg mounted and beautifully showcased with a bed of gold leaves which form a cup around the blossom. The back of the clasp is hand pierced in a flower design. It is hallmarked "14K" and weigh 62 grams.
This necklace has been professionally cleaned and restrung. The soft white hue of these beads is very pure and without the yellow undertones seen in Chinese white coral. None of the beads exhibit any natural fissures or pits, which is a difficult achievement when carving into the bead surfaces for fancy roses such as this.
There are no age or use related cracks, damage or smoothing to the beads or floral carvings. The clasp is in excellent condition and without damage or evidence of any prior repair. There are no dings, dents, etc. and it closes securely with a definitive click. The figure 8 safety catch also clicks securely on and off. This clasp works like a dream. Well planned, engineered and beautifully finished and preserved.
There are enough of the larger beads to create a shorter necklace if you prefer of just the larger carved rose beads. However, the smaller smooth beads add extraordinary contrasting to the necklace as they beautifully showcase the distinct rose carvings.
At 24.5", its length nicely coordinates with any style neckline, even neatly fitting into a v-neckline and can be put on and off without clasping. The beads are nicely sized and the beautiful clasp looks great worn at the side or back. As perfect with a sundress or t-shirt as it is with a business suit or your favorite little black dress.
Pair it with a great pair of coral earrings and you are ready to impress. See our 14K double coral bead drop earrings, Item RL-1066--they make an amazing duo!
Of course, this 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.
