VictorianCoral Cross


Coral was a material often worn by children, and this cross is petite so I wonder if it was part of a Victorian kid's getup? It's very simple, with minimal (but real) 14k gold findings. The coral is cut to nestle together in a cross shape, and it dates from the mid 19th century.
