    Beautiful 1960’s custom made necklace with handmade filigree round gold beads signed Brev in 14k gold with a rich 18k gold color. The clasp is 18k yellow gold custom made and hallmarked. The most fascinating aspect is the orangey pink beads, natural and untreated and undyed. Well polished beads that are hand wired with hardened 14k gold wire. The beads are GIA certificate #5171592435, certified natural shell of an unknown species. They were believed to be Coral by all until the GIA certificate analysis.
