 Coral Jewelry
CORAL jewelry was thought in Victorian times to promote good health and it was often worn by young children for this reason.
Coral is also associated with the boundless sea and with longevity.

VICTORIAN parure of coral beads set in 10 karat yellow gold with applied and engraved designs circa 1880. Each piece has beautifully fashioned gold leaves and berries that hold the stick coral. The bracelet is four strands of coral beads with a coral bead catch, 7" long and has a safety chain. The larger brooch has a three foxtails and a watch hook on the back, 1-1/2"; the smaller brooch is 3/4"; earrings are 14k screw backs which were probably replaced in the early 1900's and are 7/8"; the ring is size 7. These are a mix of karat gold and gold filled, with the clasps and brooch fronts being 10k, the ring shank 14k and the fittings and earrings backs gold filled. Sets with this many matching pieces are very scarce and this is a real treasure. In the Victorian era, wearing coral was thought to promote good health.  A set almost identical to this can be seen in "Jewelry in America, 1600-1900" by Martha Gandy Fales on page 245.    View  View   View   View   View   View   View   #V3800

"I was thrilled to see the coral earrings in their original box. "G" was George Butterworth, my great uncle. He was apprenticed in his home town of Rochdale as a gold and silver worker when he left school, setting up in Shipley, Yorkshire where he was later joined by his brother (my grandfather) in 1900. They then traded as Butterworth Brothers (but might have used up existing boxes of course). I have attached an image of G Butterworth. The photo was taken in 1900 when he was 27."  With kind regards, Louise Butterworth, Butterworth Brothers

PLEASE NOTE: Regretfully, it is no longer possible to respond to individual questions regarding jewelry history, identification or value, or to offer written or verbal appraisals or opinions. The demand for this kind of information is absolutely too overwhelming for one dealer to fill. 
I love jewelry, but appraising and selling are two entirely different businesses, and I choose selling and research as my business.

Instead, articles are added on a regular basis to JEWEL CHAT on line Magazine, a wonderful reference for  information on many makers and styles of vintage jewelry.
