Did you know that multi-strand necklaces where you can twist the individual strands are called torsades? This term is derived from the French "torsadée", which means "twisted". The beauty of such torsades is that you can wear them with twisted strands as well as free. Thus it can always result in a new image. This torsade is made of Italian Mediterranean coral from the Bay of Naples. The coral has a uniform shade of intense red. A gold clasp with ten brilliant cut diamonds holds the 21 strands together and adds a luminous counterpoint to the warm red of the sea treasures. The stocks of some coral species, which are now under nature conservation, as well as the skyrocketing demand for natural corals in recent years, make coral jewellery a sought-after treasure today more than ever.

In his story "The Leviathan", Joseph Roth describes the use of corals as talismans with a special protective function. In previous centuries, Mediterranean corals were supposed to help their wearers achieve greater beauty and at the same time protect them from the "evil eye". They were therefore lucky charms and at the same time protectors from the deep sea, which we encounter from time to time today and whose charm we cannot escape.
