They still retain their very soft, pretty, angelskin color. New stringing and look good. You can see they are nice early natural beads. They were well kept over the years out of sunlight. This is a lovely, early, original, natural strand for your antique jewelry collection. Nice to find a great example of Victorian angelskin coral made before the oceans became polluted; there is probably a very limited amount of this true coral left in the waters today!!
