Splendid necklace in red Sardinian Cerasuolo coral, made in Italy in Torre del Greco (homeland of coral and cameos, renowned worldwide) with clasp with antique shell cameo.
The clasp presents two types of gold: the cameo frame and the beads at the ends of the necklace are in gold 18 kt, while the clasp mechanism is in 9 kt (spring and intelocking)
I believe that this difference in grades is the result of the antique cameo being refitted to give the necklace more lustre.
The precious engravings of the figure adorning it is a woman in profile with a wreath of leaves with spherical fruit, and curly hair and flowers in the hair and on her shoulder
Please take a good look at the quality of the engravings.
With a cameo it is not the size that counts, but the quality of the work.
The craftsmanship of the 18 kt gold set around the 1930s/40s style cameo is noteworthy, as is the flower engraved on the gold, it is very high quality and precise.
Please see photos, which are an integral part of the description.
The necklace consists of spherical beads of 6 mm arranged in 5 strands, hand-knotted in torchon style
The weight of just the coral and the hooks is approx. 90 g
