Embrace your inner mermaid with this beautifully feminine Mediterranean precious coral bead vintage necklace.
Hailing from the 1970's the small beads are gently graduated along the length and it is a good weight for the size of the beads. The red coral is natural and undyed, it is a beautiful vivid tomato red colour. Because the coral is natural no single bead is identical but they are beautifully matched.
The beads have been expertly strung onto red silk necklace cord so the necklace lies beautifully. It terminates in a gold bead calotte at each end and fastens with a spring ring and a split jump ring. The necklace fastener isn't marked and is likely rolled gold/gold filled.
MATERIALS: clasp, rolled gold
GEMSTONE: Mediterranean red coral, approx. 130 small beads, central bead is sizes: central bead 6.3mm graduating to 2.5mm at the ends
MEASUREMENTS: Necklace length 17" (43cm)
WEIGHT: 9 grams
CONDITION: In very, very good vintage condition with expected signs of age and light surface wear. We see no damage to any of the coral beads just natural inclusions. The clasp is in perfect working order.
