This is an interesting necklace, this could just add that bit of color that you need at your neck with that black suit. This is Bamboo coral that has been dyed to feature the red coral. The coral beads are knotted in twos so they would stay stable. The necklace is 18 1/2 inches and the nuggets are the size of 3/4 inch X 1/2 inch just enough to make a nice presentation. This would be perfect in the V of a blouse or suit. For you from Kansas Red Coral Nugget Necklace.
