    Not thinking coral, I think this is glass made to look like angel skin coral possibly. Glass seems hand done, no two beads exactly the same, most have this faint striping. I always associate those tiny barrel clasps with a bit older. Any thoughts on this?

    I think you are correct.
    Glass not coral, you can see bubbles

    These could be 1920s-30s or they could be 1950s.
    I'm thinking the earlier ones wouldn't have had a clasp. You don't need one. However, some of the long necklaces I got from my mother that she had in the 40s and 50s have snap clasps.

    I'd think 1930s Czech.

    I always have gotten nicer vintage glass when each link is connected by metal loop. Have had both 30s/50s pieces, but have to say this is a longer one. Must have been when labor was cheap to link every single bead (over 100) with its own link for what probably wasn't a very expensive necklace when new. The clasp is one of those super narrow small screw type barrel clasps.

    Was thinking glass -- that's a confirmation. Do you think trying to mimic coral, or just a coincidence?

    Agree. Has the color of coral, but the way it is distributed as swirls going all around some of the beads is not consistent. For comparison:

    It is gorgeous, Lucille. And I agree with 1930s Czech, maybe even a bit older.
    Yes it is. Bohemians/Czechs have been making quality gemstone glass for a long time now.

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    It's lovely, @Lucille.b -- thanks for sharing this!
