Beautiful angel skin coral and 14k yellow gold rosary from the late 1800's. Using coral in rosary's during the 19th c was popular as coral was believed to have healing properties. I love that the coral used in this piece is the pale variety commonly referred to as angel skin.
Details.....This piece is 24" long not including bead drop and cross. The bead drop and cross measure 4.5" long, the cross measures 16.5mm x 15.2mm. The beads range from 6mm to 8.4mm. In excellent condition. Some wear should be expected on all vintage and antique pieces.
