Victorian Rare Signed Carved Salmon Coral Bead Necklace, Earrings, Brooch Parure:
I am pleased to offer for sale this lovely and rare parure of Victorian jewelry consisting of a graduated coral necklace, a pair of earrings and brooch.
The double strand necklace is 16 inches long and in excellent condition. One strand has80 hand carved, graduated beads and the other strand has 92 beads. The beads are very well matched and have a beautiful soft uniformsalmon color to them. Some beads are slightly darker than others. The clasp
is in good working condition with a lovely bead. It may a low grade of gold but has no markings.
The earrings have a large center bead that is a darker salmon color. It is particularly lovely. One earring has 13 hand wired beads and the other has 12. There are 2 hallmarks on each earring. One is 800 for the silver purity and I cannot make out the other. There is a gold vermeil on the earrings which has some loss, particularly on one earring.
The brooch is made up of 3 stylized flowers and is missing 2 beads in the center flower. It has a Victorian C clasp in good working order. The beads were made with a flattened surface with a small hole to attaché to the wire brooch.
Thank you for your interest in this lovely old set of victorian coral jewelry.
