A stunning and handsome 19th c Victorian necklace, with three carved coral cameos mounted in quatrefoil shaped and etching-decorated 14k rose gold settings attached with dangling gold balls, and all together suspended within two strands of round coral beads. The necklace pendant used to be a brooch, and still has its original pin and hook. Overall this necklace is quite large, and can be worn as a statement necklace over your favorite fall sweater. The coral cameos and beads have all been tested as entirely natural, untreated, and undyed Mediterranean coral.
