Gorgeous Cherry Red Coral Bead Sterling Silver Statement Necklace
Presented is a gorgeous vintage coral and sterling silver beaded necklace. This
piece is likely of American or European make, but we don't know for sure. The
necklace consists of subtly graduated cylindrical or barrel shaped coral beads,
in a rich cherry red color, with a sterling silver focal piece in the necklace's
center. The coral beads range in size from about 16.5 to 19 millimeters. The
necklace is individually knotted for security, strung on a very sturdy red cord,
likely cotton. The clasp is a simple but secure hook and eye style.
beads have some natural markings and irregularities, as you'd expect from a
naturally occurring material, but none of the beads have chips or cracks. No
breaks and no repairs. Please let the photos guide your judgement.
The clasp is not stamped or hallmarked, but we have tested it with nitric
acid and guarantee it to be sterling silver.
The necklace is about 19 inches long.
The necklace weighs 210 grams or 7.4 regular ounces.
