24" Hand Carved Large 16mm Coral Melon Bead Necklace
This is a really beautiful coral necklace, with large hand carved melon shaped beads in a beautiful salmon pink, this would be a type of bamboo coral. The necklace measures approx 24" long, it is strung on a fine wire with gilt filigree spacers and has crimped ends on an ornate gold tone toggle clasp.
The coral beads are all slightly different shapes and sizes, the largest are a very large 5/8"wide (nearly 16mm) by 5/8" deep, they have the natural inclusions common to coral, they have a beautiful soft color, I think they are older and were originally color enhanced, the effect is very subtle and they look very pretty and natural, I took the first with the camera flash, and the second in normal daylight so you can see the carved details and color really clearly. The corals are inter-spaced with the filigree spacers to the middle section, and old gold glass spacer beads to the ends, these allow the large beads to hang gracefully, see photos.
The necklace is in good vintage estate order, there is a little discoloration to the gold tone, this just looks gently aged; this is a really nice coral necklace, it would be perfect for summer, the color and size really make it a beautiful statement, it will be shipped in a necklace box.
