My hope is that this necklace will bring good luck and protection to whoever wears it. The large piece of genuine red coral is a natural “corno” or horn, which Italians believe bring good luck. I strung this impressive piece of coral on a long necklace of small round onyx beads, faceted onyx beads in a variety of shapes and sizes, and a whimsical mix of red coral beads.
This necklace is 27” long with a 3” coral pendant and a sterling silver "s" hook.
