Lovely Coral beads are paired up with contrasting sterling silver to produce this bright coloured bracelet. Measuring 20,50 cm in total length, it closes with embellished hook clasp. Please note size indicates stringing circumference, not inner circumference which is dictated by the size of the stones (hence fits 16-18cm wrist).
CORAL - is an organic gemstone.(Most gemstones are formed from inorganic substances, but a number of gemstones are from organic sources, that is from living things, either plants or animal). Coral is the "skeleton" formed by the individual polyps, plant-like animals, which live in colonies under the ocean. Coral can be found all over the world, but the bulk of coral used in jewellery making has always come from the waters off Sardinia and the coast of Sicily, in Mediterranean. Coral beads have been found in Egyptian graves going back 4000BC.
