A fantastic jewel which mounts a stunning coral cameo in a shape of a rose. This is a more than beautiful and huge piece, a rose carved from real coral of the best quality. The mounting is superb, 14 kt gold, the rose is surrounded by gold leaves and enhanced by a diamond. Surely the rose is carved here in Italy and very probably just in my town, you know that we are specialized in carving coral too. It is not easy to find a so large piece of coral without any white spot (the Momo coral is from Japan and always has natural white spots) to carve a so wonderful rose. The gold necklace is superbly worked as a soft triple linked chain with final gold beads to further embellish it. This is a stunning jewel offered here at a fraction of its real value, just look at the amazing carving, a real work of art. You can wear a rose that will never wither and will last forever. A rare and wonderful piece for any coral and cameo collector not to be missed.
