Antique Victorian Natural Coral Bead Necklace & 9ct Gold Clasp - Hand Made (Code A652)
An antique necklace with hand polished natural coral beads. It is made from Mediterranean red coral with the beads ranging from 3.5mm to 6.5mm. The beads are hand strung and hand knotted near the clasp. The clasp is a barrel and tongue example. It is marked, however the mark is illegible. The barrel clasp tests are 9 carat gold. This style of clasp was generally used on higher end jewellery of the period and is generally seen as a mark of quality. The necklace itself is quite subtle and feminine with the beads being ranges of salmon pink and they do not appear to have been enhanced by dying.
Length : 47 cms (18.5")
Weight: 9.88 grams (before packing)
Condition: Very good order for period. Clasp still nice and tight. Coral beads are of course a natural product so have variations. These examples are also hand polished.
Code: A652 JN21-3
