Hand-cut corals from the Mediterranean have always been the pride of southern Italian jewellery manufacturers. Antique corals are also now rare jewels from a time when corals still populated the seabed in large numbers and delighted Italian travellers with their unusual colour. The bracelet here consists of three strands of Italian coral with a particularly beautiful colour. It is known as Sardegna coral and is distinguished by its vibrant deep red colour. A clasp made of gold-plated silver with an oval coral cabochon holds the piece of jewellery securely on the arm. Bracelets like this were popular souvenirs of a trip to Italy as early as the 19th century. Our vintage bracelet was made from real coral in the years around 1960 and is not only pretty to look at, it is also still a colourful companion that can stimulate the imagination and add a splash of colour using the resources of nature.

Genuine Italian Mediterranean corals still inspire today with their wonderfully rich play of colours with a pronounced wealth of variations. From the creamy white of the Adriatic coral to the delicate pink of the angel's skin coral or Pelle d'Angelo to beautiful light and dark salmon red shades to the strong dark red colour known as oxblood or Moro coral, this wonderful natural material is characterized by the most beautiful colours of nature that the sea can produce. For centuries an integral part of princely and later also bourgeois art chambers, coral jewellery, especially from the region around the Bay of Naples, enjoyed unprecedented popularity, particularly in the 19th century. The stocks of some coral species, which are now under strict protection, as well as the demand for natural corals, which has increased dramatically in recent years, make coral jewellery a sought-after treasure today more than ever. Only antique pieces or corals from old stock come onto the market today - the quantity is therefore limited and finite.
