Measuring 27" long, this strand of branch coral is comprised of heavy pieces of coral, with good deep natural color. The longest piece measures 1 3/8" and many pieces are 1" or more, most being fairly thick. There is no clasp, as it is long enough to slip over the head. The stringing thread appears to be red silk, and the age is unknown. This is a striking necklace, with beautiful rich color and wonderful size.

Measuring 18 1/4", including clasp, this necklace is comprised of faceted cherry amber beads separated by smaller faceted jet spacers.

The color of the amber is nicely contrasted with the darker jet beads. Note that the photos taken with flash show a lighter, brighter color, as they would appear in strong light.
