Anne of Austria Pearl and Coral Necklace
This necklace was inspired by this 1620-1630 portrait of Anne of Austria by an unknown artist: https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Dumonstier_Anne_of_Austria.jpg
The striking combination of big pearls and bright, bold coral teardrops is beautiful!
My version is made with 10mm Shell Pearls, small faceted glass beads in a Coral red color. Small gold-plated beads add luxury and contrast to the red beads. The total length is 16" with a 3" extension chain.
