Aquamarine and Fan Coral OOAK

An oval-shaped aquamarine is bezel-set and framed by fan coral cast in sterling silver. The piece is finished with a varied-link silver chain. The smooth, serene blue of the aquamarine contrasts the bumpy, organic texture of the coral. This piece is an utterly unique and striking take on a bib necklace.
