Deep Red Coral is paired with apple green Chrysophrase to form this lovely bracelet. Embellishing the gemstones are Swarovski Crystals. The Thai beads compliment the equally stunning clasp. The bracelet measures 20cm in total length. Please note size indicates stringing circumference, not inner circumference which is dictated by the size of the stones (hence fits 16-18 cm wrist).

Coral can be found all over the world, but the bulk of coral used in jewellery making has always come from the waters offSardinia and the coast of Sicily, in Mediterranean. Coral beads have been found in Egyptian graves going back 4000BC.
