Art Deco inspired vintage coral, topaz and hand-linked solid gold and fine silver long layering necklace: Thalassa.

An impassioned piece, Thalassa exemplifies the perfect marriage of jewelry and art. Hypnotic London blue topaz rondelles and nuggets mingle with lusciously smooth globules and droplets of icy Swiss blue topaz. Asymmetrically placed gemstone "triptychs" (sets of three) have been showcased in 18k yellow gold wire-coiled loop frames that mix and mingle with the sterling silver hand-linked chain. A large branch of old stock (vintage) deep-sea Pacific coral adds an unexpected twist of color and line. Hand-formed caps of solid fine silver accented with 22k yellow gold finish off the coral branch. A divine addition to your collection.
The piece closes with an S-clasp of 14k solid gold and can be worn long or wrapped twice.
thirty four (34") in length.

specifics:
Old-Stock (vintage) deep-sea coral branch (with endcaps): 3.75" (95m x 6.mm)
Large Swiss blue topaz nugget: 19mm long
total length: 34"

☛ The coral branch employed in this piece is of old deep sea Pacific stock; meaning that it is of vintage origin and is of old harvest (legally harvested) but was harvested years ago though may not have been cut and polished until the present day. This type of coral cannot be harvested today and is protected. I am passionate about the responsible use of coral in jewelry and art.

☛ No detail overlooked. No addition too small. Everything has a place and everything in its place. Original and hand-built in my Gulf Coast studio.
