(Could be 18k , I havent tested, but my Grandmothers collection from well-to-do family is without doubt historic). The natural inclusions on the coral hang to back when wearing, I never noticed it until I photographed for listing. I did not want to polish or risk ruining them due to the historical provenance in the creation of these antique earrings. Antique, untreated coral is one of the most loved of materials in antique jewelry. It is considered to be one of the organic gemstones.
There is something truly sumptuous and almost edible about antique, untreated coral. It has long been worn as a talisman and later for its pure beauty; it was considered by the Victorians to promote good health and vitality, and you can really believe that it does once you experience wearing it.One of the wonderful things about coral is that it tends to adapt over time to the woman who is wearing it and will subtly change color in a very organic way. Many women have reported a feeling of rightness about their particular piece of coral jewelry, as though the piece is actually part of them. Coral ranges from white, to Angel Skin, to Salmon, to Oxblood and every nuance in between. Since ancient Rome, coral has been considered to be protective for children and in the Georgian and Victorian era children were often given carved coral rattles. Children were also given coral earrings, bracelets and necklaces to wear. There are many works of art from Regency, Victorian and the early 20th century that show coral being worn by both women and children. Looking at old works of art can be a truly wonderful way of understanding antique jewelry.
