Circa 1920 this beautiful Art Deco Italian necklace is crafted in 935 silver (a higher grade than 925 sterling) and is set with 5 natural Mediterranean coral cabochons that are undyed.
Delicate and graceful in an Art Nouveau arabesque design the coral set panels are accented with silver milgrain beading and tiny rose cut marcasite gemstones. The coral is a bright beautiful cherry red colour and a fine silver trace chain with a bolt ring clasp completes this exquisite necklace. Super quality, it does have a makers mark on a ring near the clasp but unfortunately it is worn and we are unable to read it.
