peau d'ange

Colourful necklace made of angel skin coral with gold clasp, around 1980

Peau d'Ange, Pelle d'Angelo, angel skin - that variety of coral which, when processed into pearls, is distinguished by its rosy colour interspersed with milky-white swirls, has inspired many languages to give it the same poetic name. Where the deep red Sardegna coral is reminiscent of hot summer evenings on the Italian Riviera, the angel skin coral with its delicate colouring makes us think of spring. No fewer than 95 polished pearls made of this precious material are arranged here in a progression. Each one is individual and shows its very own grain, with colours ranging from pale powder pink to more intense pink. The necklace is fastened with a gold clasp that also has a coral embedded in its centre. The size of the coral beads, their strong color and their good cut distinguish the necklace as a particularly precious piece. Always carefully stored, it is now waiting to get its wearer in the mood for summer once again.
