I have been wearing it at work all day :lol-2:
Love it!
I think you could easily go about your day wearing it, and get lots of compliments! Think of it as an opportunity to educate the masses on antique jewels!

I have searching Nigerian wedding coral and have totally fallen in love. I wish I could wear something like this:

Hi PSers! I’ve had this strand of coral for several years. My mother bought it at a gem show in AZ for me. I have intended to use it to make some custom pieces, necklace, bracelet and earrings. Not being much of a designer, I’ve struggled with what to do. I’ve always envisioned pairing the coral with turquoise and pearls. Any crafty people out there care to offer their thoughts? I have some inspo photos saved on Pinterest.

Also - am I completely naive to think that I can do this myself as a beading project and having a jeweler make me a gorgeous clasp? D5057FD5-BA89-44FE-9812-175A95883640.jpeg

My good friend from Santo Domingo Pueblo here in NM makes the most incredible jewelry.
I modeled this necklace that he made last summer.

I love the combo-especially that last necklace:love::love::love:so beautifully done.
I love the last one too! It’s my favorite one I have found. But I wonder if I am distracting too much from the coral branching by adding all that turquoise. And also adding a lot of cost, that one is def not DIY!!

That’s beautiful! How lucky you were to model it! I love just about everything that comes from southwestern jewelers. The materials and the details and the willingness to go big on scale.

Big pieces of natural colored rose corals. I bought these 30 yrs ago when they were still legal to sell. koi 089.jpg

I’ve been loving coral lately! I was at an estate auction and won this little coral ring. It was listed as possible coral in white metal with a terrible picture in the program so I didn’t have much competition. I have no idea how much coral sells for, but I think I got a deal on it. Turns out it’s real coral set in platinum with a little diamond halo.

My daughter has claimed the little one for the future (only 4 years old) I love the shade of the bigger one and the setting is unusual but definitely different.
They are beautiful!
I am guessing that the bigger one was made in Italy. It has that vintage European look!

Thank you very much,
I believe you are right, there isn’t any hallmarks on the inside.. just a C outside on the shank of the ring. It tested as 14k gold.
