Coral has been used in jewelry for at least 25,000 years. In Greek mythology, red coral was the petrified blood of Medusa that spread into the sea upon her death by Perseus. It was used as a protection stone in Ancient Rome against the evil eye, particularly for children, and continues to be used today as a charm of luck. All of our coral is repurposed from vintage jewelry.
