This is a wonderful vintage demi-parure, consisting of a choker length (15 inch) necklace and matching earrings.
The set is made of white coral beads and hallmarked 14 karat yellow gold. The choker has round beads, approximately 9mm each, with each one hand knotted in between. It closes with an attractive coral and gold clasp, which is push in style and has a safety lock. The clasp may be worn in front or to the side as it is quite lovely.
The matching earrings have flat beads, a bit over 9mm each, in a yellow gold setting matching that of the necklace clasp. They are for pierced ears and stud style.
I have been asked by several customers to better quantify the color of the beads on the set, so I would call them white to off-white, with very slight pinkish highlights on some of the beads.
The pieces are in lovely vintage condition. There is one thread slightly loose, but the necklace seems very secure and does not require restringing. One of the clutches (fasteners) on the earrings has been replaced with a non gold one. (A 14k fastener can be purchased from any jeweler for approximately $8 - $10 if that concerns you). The combined weight for both pieces is 62.2 grams.
