Museum Quality Twenty Four Strand Ox-Blood Red Mediterranean Coral Necklace by Nattarika Hartman. This is an outrageous and show stopping necklace of red Natural Mediterranean Coral from Italy. This is top grade coral! It is very, very hard to find these beads, almost impossible. These RARE beads were tediously strung on beadalon wire and are finished off with handmade filigree sterling silver cones and cable design toggles. Many, many hours went into hand stringing these beads. Artisan handmade in Durango, Colorado USA and has a sterling silver tag with the artist’s signature.
The necklace is 27 1/2 Inch and weighs 95 grams. The diameter of all strands together is approx. : 11 mm. Each strand is made of many 1.7mm tiny tube beads.
The beads in this necklace are 100% natural Mediterranean Coral from Italy. These beads are NOT dyed, they are natural color and were purchase directly from an Italian gem dealer.
DO NOT MISTAKE THIS FOR BAMBOO, OR SPONGE CORAL. These other types of coral are dyed and stabilized and come from the seas near China. They are neat forms of coral, but are not as valuable as Italian Mediterranean coral.
