This large 2 by 1 & 1/4" brooch is a beauty. The tested sterling silver bears no identifiable marks, except tool marks as the entire setting is hand pierced and chased. Your finger can feel the chasing. It looks Asian, but I cannot tell. There is touch mark on the pin stem (which also is hand crafted). It has an early 20th c. safety clasp original to the piece. The coral is just lovely! It is a soft matte finish salmon hue--almost velvety. The cabochon measures 1 & 1/8" by 3/4". It looks gilded but is not; you see soft patination. I imagine it will brighten up white. It's a nice quality piece.
I stripped out the patina in the first image to better show the chasing. The second imagine is a better color rendition.
