Send me an Angel

Large vintage angel skin coral necklace with gold clasp from Naples, 1960s

Genuine Italian Mediterranean corals still inspire today with their wonderfully rich play of colors with a pronounced wealth of variations. From the creamy white of the Adriatic coral to the delicate pink of the angel skin coral or Pelle d'Angelo to beautiful light and dark salmon red hues to the strong dark red color known as oxblood or Moro coral, this wonderful natural material is characterized by the most beautiful colors of nature that the sea can produce. The color pink in the most delicate shades makes this necklace of genuine angel skin coral an enchanting eye-catcher. At the sight of it, it becomes clear how appropriately the name of this coral has been chosen, as it simply radiates rosy like the cheeks of an angel. The 71 coral beads used here are almost a centimeter thick and all cut by hand. They are individually knotted and evenly strung. The piece of jewelry is completed with a high-quality clasp made of high-carat yellow gold. The piece of jewelry, which was probably made around 1960 in the Bay of Naples, is in first-class condition and extremely decorative. Its row of fine corals delights and delights again and again.

For centuries, coral jewellery, especially from the region around the Bay of Naples, has been an integral part of princely and later also bourgeois art chambers and enjoyed a popularity never experienced before, especially in the 19th century. The stocks of some coral species, which are now under strict protection, as well as the demand for natural corals, which has increased dramatically in recent years, make coral jewellery a sought-after treasure today more than ever. Today, experts are already talking about the "diamond of the future" in terms of the value of Mediterranean corals. Only antique pieces or corals from old stock come onto the market today - the quantity is therefore limited and finite. So the value of corals can only increase!
