NR Vtg 14k Solid Gold Chain Lapis Coral Pearl & Gold Bead Necklace 30.4g, 24"

Vintage 14k yellow gold chain necklace with lapis, pearl, coral, and gold beads. It is marked on the clasp and was examined by my gemologist. The lapis beads appear to have been color treated. The coral is natural salmon pink. The gold beads are 14k but hollow. Lapis and coral beads about 7mm. Pearls about 6mm. Gold beads are in 2 sizes, 5mm and 3mm. The total weight of the necklace is 30.4 grams. Because the beads are on a chain rather than knotted, there is some extra room on the chain to allow for movement. I think this was a much loved piece. The clasp is in good working order. The coral beads and pearls show some wear, mostly by the holes where they would have rubbed against the other beads. A few of the coral beads have slight cracks near the hole - I don't see anything that would indicate the beads will break or split though. See last 2 photos. Overall good wearable condition - an unusual combination with fine beads and gold. From a local estate sale.
See photo for measurements. ***Any stray blue spots are reflections of my blue camera.***
