Summer Coral


About this design:

16" Coral briolettes with decorative,sterling,focal ball. Piece finished with marcosite sterling toggle.

This is a great summer piece, dress up or dress down. A customer purchased last weekend, it looked fabulous on her, she had the perfect neck!

The great thing about briolettes is that they are light weight, but they add a lot of punch to your design.

Components:

Red Coral Briolettes and sterling components.

    OMG!!! WOW!! This is utterly stunning! I shows that sometimes less is more! I love the Sterling Silver focal bead, and how the Coral brios compliment it so well. I generally don’t like wearing choker-style necklaces but this is something I’d proudly wear, I’m glad that your customer loves it (and has the neck for it). :)

    Excellent again and beautifully designed.
    I hope Lima will bring back the coral drops, they disappeared from my shopping bag. I would like to think they went into this necklace. Well done once again!
