Antique Coral Necklace

Coral has been used in jewellery for thousands of years and has a rich history dating back to ancient civilizations, when it was highly prized for its magnificent colour, and the belief in its protective properties.
In ancient Rome, coral was associated with Venus, the goddess of love and beauty, and Roman women would wear coral necklaces, earrings and bracelets as a sign of their prosperity.

In the 18th and 19th centuries, when this piece was made, coral was worn as a talisman to ward off evil spirits.
It’s wonderful colour makes it perfect for year-round wear, toning perfectly with autumn colours and vibrant summer colours alike.
