Victorian Natural Pink Beaded Coral Chain
This gorgeous chain of small circular coral beads is beautifully handmade and was used in the past for carried a watch, or as a fob. It makes a great necklace today, and one can wear it with many different charms. The coral has a spectacular and bold pink color, with some of the beads being lighter than others. The beads are linked through pink thread and the gold loop at the end is 14 karat gold. It also has some detailed etching floral patterns. This is a natural occurrence, adding to the beauty of these singularly hand picked coral pieces. Most likely they were found in the Mediterranean, as import from Italy was very popular during the Victorian era and most coral came via ship from the coast of Italy. Coral jewelry was in fashion at this time as Queen Victoria loved to wear it and during her reign popularized it. Most coral jewelry is now dyed. You can really tell the difference in quality and color simply upon looking at this chain. These antique corals are truly a rarity, in great condition, and one of a kind. Historically coral has also been used as an amulet- because it grows mostly rocky sea bottom, typically in dark environments- it is said to be connected to life essence and can relieve melancholy and excessive worry. The coral chain measures 26 inches all around and can be taken on and off very easily.
