Antique 1890s Victorian Salmon Coral Necklace Hand Carved Long & Graduated with a Gold Filled Tube Clasp
Lovely and so sentimental! This beautiful Victorian Salmon Coral necklace is a delight! The long strand of hand carved salmon coral beads graduates from tiny 2mm beads up to the largest center bead of 6mm. The slight "imperfectly round" silhouette of each bead affirms their hand wrought origin. The necklace exhibits the natural inclusions and inconsistencies in the beads that gives testament to its genuine coral elements. A dainty rose gold filled tube or "push pin" clasp completes the piece.
In the Victorian era, coral was regarded as a talisman of protection for both mothers and children. Small branch coral pieces, held by gold filled mountings are popular among collectors, but an entire long strand is a rare find indeed. They were worn quite often...on Sundays to church and to visit friends...and were, in many cases, a woman's finest piece of jewelry. Unfortunately, many strands were lost having worn out due to frequent wear and the beads lost.
Measurements: 21" in wearable length.
Condition: In very, very good antique condition. The silk stringing appears to be strong and in excellent condition. The beads have a lovely old luster and are the delicate orange-y salmon pink color that is so prized.
Hallmarks: None Found
Circa: 1890s - Victorian Era
