This vintage torsade necklace features 40 strands of hand cut Mediterranean coral beads all gathered together with a macrame closure for comfort at the back. An amazing amount of labor went into the making of this gorgeous statement necklace. Thousands and thousands of little hand cut gem quality beads in a rich red coral only found in the Mediterranean. Needless to say this is a substantial piece. Sure to please. It is interesting to note that there are a few tiny non-coral beads found in the weaving. Condition is great with no missing beads, just a little discoloration to the ivory macrame. It measures approximately 20" in length and closes with a simple button. Very nice and wonderful when worn. Perfect for a tropical vacation.
