Vintage Genuine Japanese Red Coral Necklace + 18K Gold Spacers
All my coral items are genuine natural, no dyed or simulated items, no treated or re-constructed items, no sea-bamboo or weed-coral or any other confusion stuffs. Vintage Japanese ox-blood red coral necklace, very delicate double-strand design, perfect for summer days. Genuine natural Japanese ox-blood beads, almost perfect roundness (over 90%), very even bright red colour, highly polished glossy look, very high jewellery grade. All photos are taken under normal day light (a bit cloudy day though), no photoshop or airbrush at all, which means the real item is more beautiful than the photos. The material is between Aka and Momo coral, not as transparent as Aka, but very deep bright red than most of Momo coral. Japanese coral is the best and the hardest coral in the world, its quality is famous for detailed carving. This necklace is about 41-45cm, the metal beads between the coral beads are tested as 18K yellow gold, and the clasp is normal metal rolled-gold (or gold plated), the coral beads size is from 3-4mm, the gold spacers are about 2.5mm. Under different lights, some beads at the side of the necklace are slightly lighter colour than the beads in the middle, I could not capture the colour difference, or maybe just because the light changing and the beads are highly polished. There are 3 beads have insect bites which so tiny to see, I wonder whether you could find them, also tiny white growth marks on few of the beads which not visible at all, also the insect bites and the white growth marks are completely normal for Japanese coral. It is in perfect pre-loved condition, dated about late 80s, no visible damage at all, the string in this necklace is metal as well, no visible sign of use.
It will make a great gift for someone special, or a nice reward for yourself. The item "Vintage Genuine Japanese Red Coral Necklace + 18K Gold Spacers" is in sale since Tuesday, June 9, 2020.
