Coral is a decorative semiprecious gemstone with a very special fascination - the perfect embodiment of our longing for summer, sun, and exotic places. You will love our selection of handmade beaded Coral jewelry crafted by talented artisans. Natural Coral has a matt finish, and it is not until it has been polished that it takes on that beautiful shine. Coral jewelry should be kept in a safe place and from time to time cleaned with a soft, damp towel. For thousands of years Coral has been used for decorative purposes and esteemed as a protective stone. In many cultures red coral is worn as a talisman to protect the wearer against evil spirits. Coral, it is said, relieves tension and fear and promotes positive forms of social life. Coral looks awesome against bare skin and reflects the complexion of its wearer.
