Necklace made of fine angel skin coral with silver clasp, second half of the 20th century.

Genuine corals inspire to this day by their wonderfully rich play of colors with pronounced richness of variation. From the creamy white of the Adriatic coral to the delicate pink of the angel skin coral, also called Pelle d'Angelo, to the strong dark red color of the oxblood or Moro coral - this wonderful natural material is characterized by the most beautiful colors that the sea can produce. This magnificent necklace is also made of angel skin coral, which in its wonderful shades is reminiscent of strawberry ice cream with cream. At the sight of it, it becomes clear how appropriately the name of this coral is chosen, as it shines rosy like the cheeks of an angel. The necklace presents a total of thirty-four polished beads of coral, which are strung individually knotted. A magnetic silver ball clasp holds the necklace securely. The piece of jewelry that was created in the second half of the 20th century is in first-class condition and extremely decorative. Its row of fine coral, knotted by hand, delights with every glance. We have a second, almost identical necklace in our store, so thanks to the magnetic clasps you can combine both necklaces into one long necklace.

For centuries an integral part of princely and later also bourgeois art chambers, coral jewelry, especially from the region around the Bay of Naples, enjoyed unprecedented popularity, especially in the 19th century. The stocks of some coral species, which are now under strict conservation, as well as the demand for natural corals, which has increased dramatically in recent years, make coral jewelry today more than ever a sought-after treasure. Experts speak today, concerning the value of Mediterranean corals already of the "diamond of the future". Today, only antique pieces or corals from old stock come onto the market - the quantity is therefore limited and finite. So the value of corals can only increase!
