An incredible antique one-of-a-kind necklace...this one is an old treasure which has been restrung to last at least another hundred years.
The center pendant features a large cabochon of sponge coral set in a silver-tone bezel that measures 1 3/4 inches across by 2 inches high. With its four beaded dangles below, it's 3 1/2 inches long. The old coral has a beautiful textured patina in a rich salmon color.
The beads along the necklace chain are all special...more old sponge coral, old mined Chinese turquoise, hand-painted bone beads, inlaid bone spacer beads, ornate silver-tone spacers and two figural Chinese wise men. They're made of 800 silver and are 1 1/4 inches high. Each holds a pomegranate Seed of Life for good luck. Little bells at the bottom ward off evil.
The necklace measures 19 inches around, ending in a handmade silver-tone clasp. The necklace weighs 94 grams. It's in excellent antique condition. Superb from one end to the other.
