Description

This beautiful sterling cuff bracelet surrounded with Mediterranean coral nuggets is heavily oxidized through wear. The main design of the bracelet consists of a centered bezeled oval piece of coral surrounded by nine other smaller bezeled pieces of coral. There are three other bezeled pieces of coral on each side of the main cluster. Hand twisted wire and silver rain drops complete this amazing cuff.  The back is stamped with “M” and sterling.

Coral is now considered an endangered species and cannot be purchased any longer for making jewelry. It may not be too long before there will be no coral jewelry produced. The only coral available is what is already in stores or in private collections.

Condition: Excellent – original condition
Provenance: Acquired from a private collector in Texas.
