OMG!   It was a gift from the gods to find two coral beads like these that matched to make a perfect pair.  That color too!  Unadulterated red.  You see, this is not stuff you just throw away when when it breaks.  She had to keep these to give to her daughter because coral is money- and she looks gorgeous in it.  She wrapped it tightly with silver wire and never took them off, giving them the added beauty of her day to day life, wear.  Then her daughter or the next per did the same.
