Beautiful soft salmon pink color antique/vintage necklace with 14k gold clasp and beads. Genuine natural coral.
The necklace has sixteen coral nuggets, ranging in size from about 13/16 to 1″ long, and 11/16 to 7/8″ wide.
Soft coral grows a wood-like core for support (see soft coral diagram from NOAA, above) so you can see a woody interior in the beads from the natural holes and “windows” in the beads.
The necklace is 18″ long and has a lobster claw clasp.
The necklace weighs 146.5 grams.
The clasp is marked 585 (14k).
This estate antique necklace shows some wear appropriate to the soft stone and the age of the necklace. There is a large chip in one of the beads, detailed in a photo above. Please view photos closely. As is.
