Beautiful vintage precious coral necklace with 14K gold clasp. these 5.5 mm beads are white with the occasional blush of angelskin. The perfect gift for a birthday, Valentine's Day, or just about anytime.
Long ago, coral necklaces were often worn by children as protective amulets. Coral is believed to stop bleeding and regulate the circulatory system, protect from evil spirits, and to ward off hurricanes.
CONDITION is lovely. Strung on silk, I have not had them restrung. These are beautiful beads, hand carved with a small irregularity here and there. There are small areas of pink blush, however, the impression of this necklace is much like that given in the picture on the mannequin... a pure creamy white. I would guesstimate a date in the first half of the 20th C with a later restringing. The wearable length is a versatile 18".
For a special someone, even if that someone is you. This beautiful necklace is ready to wear or gift, and packed appropriately for presentation and safekeeping. Enjoy!
