This is a charming, multi strand, antique necklace of large carved, barrel shaped salmon/red coral beads with three stands of small coral beads between. The large central bead measures from approx 17mm x 9mm and long cylindrical beads are from approx 17mm - 13mm in length by approx 7mm in diameter. The small beads are approx 2.5mm on average.
They would be hand carved. The condition of the necklace is good vintage with a few natural flaws to the beads. I think that it would probably date to the 19th century, Victorian era. It weighs approx 23g on my postal scales.The length is approx 430mm including the push in decorative catch.
