This vintage coral bead necklace is simply stunning! The simple design features a row of graduating coral beads, which are hand strung on red thread, and knotted in between. The coral is natural and untreated, displaying a beautiful range of deep orange and red colors. Each bead is lightly faceted, giving the surface a soft, light-catching sparkle. The necklace fastens securely in the back with a modern 14kt white gold clasp (stamped "585" inside), which is magnetized for ease and convenience. When worn, the strand of beads drapes beautifully below the neckline, where it makes a prominent and colorful statement. Perfect for the coral lover, this gorgeous necklace would look equally beautiful worn alone or layered with other beads!
Measurements: The necklace measures 19.5" in total length (including the clasp). The largest coral beads at the center measure approximately 6-7mm wide. The smallest coral beads at the back measure about 3mm wide. The round magnet clasp is 8mm in size.
Condition: The overall condition of the necklace is excellent. Besides normal surface wear, there is no apparent damage to any of the coral beads, all of which are intact and securely strung. Some of the beads display minor inclusions, which is a normal characteristic of natural coral, and adds to its unique beauty. The white gold magnet clasp is strong and fastens securely and easily.
