This is a fine strand of white coral beads. Circa 1960's or earlier. White natural coral is from the deep ocean. There are some beads with a very slight blush to them. They gently cascade form 9.5mm to 10.1mm, giving the appearance of of uniformly sized beads.
The necklace weighs a hefty 110 grams. Hefty weight is a major determining factor of high quality coral. Slow growth in cold waters precipitates the compacted density of quality coral. Warm water coral grows much quicker and therefore is more porous and lightweight.
The necklace is 27 1/2 inches long. The clasp is silver accented with a 3mm salt water cultured pearl.
There is a slight fissure in one bead so we have priced the strand accordingly, though the strand truly is worth much more. It is very stable and totally unnoticeable in person. You can keep it as is, or restring it with or without the bead.
