This is an older coral necklace, found at an estate sale mixed with other vintage and antique jewelry, much from the Victorian and Edwardian eras. The necklace was very short, perhaps for a child or as a choker for a tiny woman. But it is of beautiful salmon-colored beads carved in a "dog bone" shape, fitting together in an intricate pattern. The beads are graduated and, although beautifully matched, have tiny imperfections and subtle color differences that indicate they are natural and undyed. I suspect the beads are from Italy, which was a traditional source of this type of necklace. I restrung the necklace on sturdy beading wire, added graduated gold-filled beads to lengthen the necklace, and replaced the broken rolled-gold clasp with a gold-filled filigree clasp. The necklace is about 18.5 inches in length. The soft warm color of the coral in this classic necklace would look as lovely with a summer sundress as against a winter sweater.
