Presenting a Fabulous Beaded Angel Skin (or Pink Salmon) Color Carved Cameo Clasp Triple Strand Necklace for your auction pleasure.

Three strands of pink & white Victorian coral accented by a high relief carved coral cameo clasp that acid tests for 14kt gold. Weight is 51.1 grams. The coral beads are hand carved and no chips or other flaws present.

The coral beads graduate in size from 9.5mm in the back to 4.4mm in the front. The beautiful hand carved cameo clasp features the profile of a lovely young woman in classical garb with two flowers in her hair. The working clasp measures 14mm x 18mm.

The three strands of coral measure 15" long and nest perfectly when worn.
