Australia is burning. I am auctioning this antique coral & seed pearl necklace to raise money for the animal victims. From my personal collection, it is a beautiful 3 strand design typical of the late 19th/ early 20th C. The pendant features coral beads and tiny seed pearls. Appears to be marked 9K on the clasp. One tiny pearl missing & a little discoloration on one edge. The necklace measures 15" long in total. Pendant is 1"across & 2" long. All proceeds of the auction will go to @wwf_australia's bushfire emergency appeal to care for injured wildlife, then to help restore their forest homes when the blazes are finally put out. Please bid in Australian dollars via live chat, email email@example.com or in the comments on the Instagram post before Wed January 22 at 12 EST. Winning bidder donates directly to WWF and I will pay the shipping to you anywhere in the world. Starting bid $50 AUD= $35 USD. I implore you to dig deep. Thousands of people are suffering terrible losses and there are huge numbers of animals out there, many dead, many needing to be euthanized, and many can still be saved if not too badly burnt. One estimate is that there are half a billion dead animals so far. I know you the vintage community are caring people with special love for animals. Please consider a direct donation to help these voiceless victims. Any reposts in your stories or feed would also be greatly appreciated! Thank you so much!
