The natural red tones of coral have always inspired jewelry designers, but also artists. Hardly a painted portrait of an Italian beauty is conceivable without the red pearls from the bottom of the sea, which embellish earlobes or décolleté. For in the 19th and early 20th centuries, the Mediterranean still produced many jewelry-quality corals. Today, however, it is due to both climate change and overfishing of coral reefs that this precious natural material can hardly be harvested. Lovers of coral jewelry must therefore resort to antique corals, because the quality of the old material is incomparably better also than that of the new Asian, always colored or treated corals - and likewise this is the more environmentally friendly variant. The present necklace, dating from around 1900, features the most beautiful salmon coral color with natural toning and only a few natural growth features. Two rows of hand-cut pearls in a dark salmon hue are arranged in graduation, thickening toward the center. A coral-studded rolled gold clasp completes the beautiful necklace. Thus, a fine piece of jewelry from the Italy of the 1900s has been preserved, which has lost nothing of its effect. We had the necklace re-strung and knotted. It found its way to us in the south of Germany.
