Coral has been integrated into jewelry design for centuries, and is considered a talisman of protection. It was popularized in fine jewelry once the upper classes began taking 'The Grand Tour' during the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.
What a wonderful background for this exotic, romantic and astonishing necklace! Carved of the most sought after shade of bright orange coral, it is comprised of carved coral beads with one dozen graduating finely carved head dangling pendants and a large pendant, all representing the goddess Flora and her followers. A very rare piece worthy of a museum exhibit and a celebration of female power and beauty!
