Antique Victorian Coral Bead Gold Enamel 12.8g Necklace For Sale
Antique Victorian Coral Bead Gold Enamel 12.8g Necklace
This sale is for a fine quality and colorful, natural coral bead necklace, that is from the Victorian era.This piece is not marked but the clasp tests positive for 10k solid gold and closes securely. The clasp is accented with a pretty floral design as well as enamel, there is some enamel missing, but it is overall 50% intact. It looks like the tongue of the clasp is a replacement and not original to the piece. This necklace is unique in that the cut of the beads does not graduate but is fairly consistent across the necklace. Each bead is elliptical (not a perfect sphere) with the beads measuring 4 - 4.5mm in diameter. The beads are well cut with nice shapes that are consistent across the strand. The color is a nice pink, (its not as dark or as "hot" orange as in the photos) that is well matched all along the necklace. The coral beads have a beautiful sheen and nice luster with very little pitting or discoloration. The strand is very firm (I think at some point it was re-strung) without any loosening or gaps in the strand. Overall this is a fine quality and colorful, natural coral bead necklace, that is from the Victorian era that is in Very good condition.
