Coral

Coral is among the most ancient of gem materials, used for adornment since prehistoric times.

Natural coral is found in many colours: white is the most common colour, but a variety of other shades can be found, including pink, orange, red, and black.  Coral is often dyed to resemble a more rare or desired variety. Red coral, for example, has usually been dyed to deepen its colour or to make it more uniform.

To combat environmental issue, all coral reefs are protected and coral sea farms have been created for Coral Reef Rehabilitation and Integrative Biological Research, especially in the South Seas and Australia. Hopefully the coral farms will be the only source of coral in the future, just as pearl farms have become.         

Our coral is sourced from a UNESCO awarded jeweller.
