Stunning Multi-Strand Set-urquoise, Coral, Pearl, Gold

This fantastic set of necklace and matching bracelet features a gorgeous mixture of antique coral, pearl, and turquoise beads, set off by strands of twisted gold. They were made as a set by a local (but unnamed) artist in New Mexico and is a "one-off" piece, not part of a line. Necklace and bracelet consist of five strands of high quality bead gemstones. The necklace's strands are: two of turquoise, two of mixed pearl/coral, and one of twisted gold chain. The bracelet's strands are: two of turquoise one of mixed coral/pearl, and two of twisted gold chain. Both pieces finish in a long, box-tongue clasped, stamped 14K on the reverse side, with the maker's mark, which we have not been able to identify. The strands' sections are separated by 14K gold beads while all the coral and pearl beads are separated either by hand-knotting or smaller gold and coral beads. These are not only all genuine gemstones and pearls, but the coral are all from older antique pieces. All the coral and turquoise beads are suberbly matched. The bracelet measures 7-1/2" when open, but because of its construction fits snugly, so we would only recommend it for a small to average wrist. The necklace when laid out straight measures 17-14" long, however please note that because of its construction and the multi-strand vertical clasp, the inner strands sit higher
