The Coral


The origin of coral is explained in Greek mythology by the story of Perseus. Having petrified Cetus, the sea monster threatening Andromeda, Perseus placed Medusa's head on the riverbank while he washed his hands. When he recovered her head, he saw that her blood had turned the seaweed (in some variants the reeds) into red coral. Thus, the Greek word for coral is 'Gorgeia', as Medusa was one of the three Gorgons.
Poseidon resided in a palace made of coral and gems, and Hephaestus first crafted his work from coral.


The Necklace

The necklace is created from 38 pieces of 10 mm sponge coral beads with silver plated lobster clasp and regulation chain.
Color: Red
Material: Coral
Length: 48 + 5 cm

Care

Cleaning should always be done with a fine and clean cloth after each wear.
Touch the coral part of your jewelry as little as possible.
Sponge coral should be stored in cloth bag or in its own box to prevent it from getting scratched by other pieces of jewelry.
