Story

Amulets of natural coral are known to have dated back to the time of Christ.

If you look closely, these potent jewels are frequently depicted in old paintings that show coral jewelry and talismans worn by babies, children, or even adults. Although adults most often wear jewelry or strings of beads, rather than amulets.

Coral was thought to be protective and could ward off evil and danger, thus often seen draped on children.

This natural coral branch is capped by vermeil, rose gold over silver. Its coloration is even with a few swirled areas of lighter hues as expected for this once living material.

Chain shown for illustration purposes. Ask about our affordable choices.

Note: Famous paintings of the Medieval and Renaissance, as well as those of 18th and 19th century are replete with images of amulets as well or coral jewelry. See our photographs for several examples. Dutch in origin, Petrus Christus painted the well-known oil, "A Jeweler in his Shop" where a coral branch and beads were illustrated on the shelves.
