Pauline Rader designed jewelry for a very short period of time and consequently, her creations are very collectible today. She had a very select clientele and her jewelry was offered in elite boutiques. She specialized in jewelry of antiquity and created pieces that were imaginative often reflecting a Greek or Italian influence. Her jewelry usually was massive and statement making although she also produced items with a more MOD vibe. This necklace reflects her interest in antiquity. It is a popular design of hers and depicts Roman/Grecian coins. The coins vary in size and the largest are 1" in diameter, the smallest 1/2". They are done in gold plate that is made to look ancient. The distress markings are intentionally done. The coins are all discs that are sculpted and double sided. They depict different scenes including profiles of different citizenry. The engravings are raised like a modern coin. Some circles are uneven in shape. Each coin has a faux coral cabochon that shows through to the other side. The coral is bright and each stone is embedded in the coin. Rader made this necklace with coins of other colors. The necklace loses with a spring ring closure. The "Pauline Rader" identification tag is attached. The necklace measures approximately 32" from end to end. The necklace is in great condition. If you love the combination of coral and gold, this is the necklace for you. And it's so interesting and unique. Hail Caesar! Condition: Excellent VINTAGE Condition
