Gorgeous vintage 1970s necklace with very big genuine Mediterranean red coral graduated beads in soft barrel shapes, hand knotted in a continuous strand. It weighs 189 grams. The beads are polished and smooth, with many naturally occurring openings and some areas of dark brown and cream, again naturally occurring. The coral is guaranteed, genuine, natural, and undyed. I am also listing a similar smaller coral necklace from the same estate. Wearable length is 30 inches. The largest center bead is 26mm by 17mm and the smallest bead is 6mm by 7mm. Excellent condition. Display form is life size. Photos enlarged to show detail.
