EXCEPTIONAL VINTAGE, HAND POLISHED CORAL BEAD NECKLACE
This wonderful NECKLACE came in with other very interesting
pieces. The owner was apparently well-traveled and many of the
pieces were high quality, hand fashioned in more remote parts of the
world. This perfectly matched, intense color coral
graduated necklace is about 29 inches long and the beads,
which vary slightly in shape and width, were hand fashioned and
polished. The beads range from 15mm to 5.5 mm.
Originally the ends terminated in simple metal rings, which apparently
were to be held together by some sort of additional clasp. Sparklz
has had it restrung and knotted with dyed-to-match cord and added a 14K
clasp. Vintage estate jewelry in excellent
condition. Estimated retail replacement $3600+. A similarly
size necklace, not vintage and may have been dyed, was seen at the Tucson
jewelry show, priced wholesale at $1800. and another was seen retail at
