Strawberry ice cream with cream

Rosy necklace made of angel skin coral, second half of the 20th century.

Genuine corals inspire to this day by 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, also known as Pelle d'Angelo, to the strong dark red colour of the oxblood or Moro coral - this wonderful natural material is characterised by the most beautiful colours that the sea can produce. An angel skin coral, whose wonderful shades are reminiscent of strawberry ice cream with cream, is presented here. At the sight of it, it becomes clear how aptly 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 that are strung individually in a knotted fashion. A magnetic silver ball clasp holds the necklace securely. Dating from the second half of the 20th century, this piece of jewelry is in first-rate condition and highly decorative. Its row of fine coral, knotted by hand, delights and delights anew with every glance.

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!
