The Red coral necklace with gold lock consists of three rows of red corals with a gold clasp on both sides, to which the rectangular lock is attached. The beads are made of real red coral. The size of the beads determined the wealth; the bigger, the more expensive and – in the eyes of the Volendam women – the more beautiful! Many of the red corals come from places where the traditional costume gradually disappeared. When in mourning, the beads were of black glass, jet, or garnet. In the middle of the richly decorated gold lock sat an image, covered with a rectangular piece of glass. That image could be: a ship, the ‘All-seeing Eye’, figures of hair work, occasionally a photo, and so on. These beautiful golden locks were made especially for Volendam and Hoorn by the Rozendaal brothers.
