    Condition Notes: Victorian-era fruits of the sea! Delicately weaved and stitched seed pearls were fashionable amongst women of the 19th century. The coral of the earrings displays a dull finish, completed by silver screwbacks. The carved coral and seed pearl bracelet is marked 14k and one string is broken; restringing is suggested. The other weaved coral bracelet is marked 14k, the "spike-shaped" pendants are yellow metal/gold plated. The coral pendant-brooch-locket is unmarked, tests 14k, completed by pinstem and catch with a enclosed compartment for hairwork or a photo. The hinged coral bracelet tests silver. All other items marked or test 14k. Many coral pieces show pitting and polyp holes, naturally.
