An archaeological revival pendant in coveted, dense white coral, circa 1870. Set with a scrolling fairytale-gate pattern it is rumored that white coral jewels such as this were meant to echo they style of byzantine jewelry from the 8th-11th century.
I was extraordinarily excited to find this peculiar turquoise and coral stick pin, decorated with scrolling gold-work. Now converted to a pendant with the utmost care, using the original stick pin center to create the ring at the top.
