A wonderful and rare natural Italian Mediterranean five strand necklace. Each strand of dark rich red 5 mm beads cascade in slightly varied lengths with the inner strand 16 inches and the outer strand 18 inches. The large oval vivid Oxblood Clasp is 19.4 mm X 12.4 mm (3/4" X 1/2 ") and set in a sumptuous 14 K (marked) yellow gold bezel. This is a box-and-tongue clasp and very secure. Each strand is individually hand knotted and strung on reddish color silk. This Italian necklace is a composition of brilliant, colorful and beautiful Natural Coral (not enhanced), which was harvested years ago from the limpid blue waters of the Mediterranean Sea!
