Wow, wow and again wow. This must be the most special coral necklace we ever had and most likely we will ever have. The beads are huge! And there are so many! Fifty big beads! From time to time we find an antique coral necklace with perhaps one big bead in the center. But to find one necklace with such an amazing collection of big and good quality beads is rarer than a rarity.
The beads are not strung but wired on 14K red gold. The closure is hidden inside a magnificent gold filigree sphere,typically Dutch 19th century. We were amazed when we found it and actually we still are. What a beauty!

The Victorian era is known for its eclectic revival and interpretation of historic styles and the introduction of cross-cultural influences from the middle east and Asia in furniture, fittings, and Interior decoration. Victorian design is widely viewed as having indulged in a regrettable excess of ornament. The Arts and Crafts movement, the aesthetic movement, Anglo-Japanese style, and Art Nouveau style have their beginnings in the late Victorian era.

Technique: Filigree (formerly written filigrann or filigrane) is a delicate kind of jewel work made with twisted threads usually of gold and silver or stitching of the same curving motifs. It often suggests lace and French from 1660 to the late 19th century. It should not be confused with ajoure jewellery work; while both have many open areas, filigree involves threads being soldered together to form an object and ajoure involves holes being punched, drilled, or cut through an existing piece of metal.
