This is a fine, French three row hand faceted, natural coral necklace, circa 1820. It is all original with every bead perfectly faceted and matched in size and color. The color is the rich, desirable color only found in natural coral that is undyed. It has an original 18 karat gold, Georgian period clasp and bead caps. How wonderful to find quality coral in a necklace that is all original to the period.

Through the centuries, coral has been thought to hold talismanic powers of protection against evil and illness. As far back as Roman times, children were often given pieces of coral jewelry at their christening intended to keep the child safe and happy.. Early portraits of 18th and 19th century woman exemplify the love and popularity of coral jewelry. The last photo is a portrait, by Ben Bradley of Emma Homan wearing coral jewelry, circa 1844.

This necklace retains the French gold guarantee stamp of a ram on the clasp, which dates this necklace to the years 1819-1838. It measures 18.5 inches long. Each bead is approximately 5.4 mm.
The condition is excellent.

It drapes gracefully on the neck and is easily worn day or evening. Elegant and beautiful...
