Beautiful Sterling Silver & Black Bead Multi Strand Torsade Necklace
Regular price $252.00
Presented is a stunning sterling silver and black bead multi-strand necklace. This is a relatively modern piece, made by Victor Carranza for retail by the high-end Paradise Island resort, Atlantis. The necklace consists of 30 strands of tiny black glass beads, made to emulate black coral jewelry. The glass is very hard to distinguish from coral, made in such a way that the internal bubbles mimic the fibrous structure of natural coral, even under a jeweler's loup. The necklace can be worn with the strands twisted in a torsade style, or untwisted, as the photos show. The clasp is a toggle style, in sterling silver. This necklace is in great condition. The clasp functions well and closes securely. The clasp is stamped with the signature of Victor Carranza, as well as "For Atlantis, Paradise Island, Bahamas" and 925 for sterling silver. The necklace is about 34 inches long.
