Vintage Coral Jewelry

Coral jewelry has a timeless appeal, and is more popular than ever today. It's really our specialty and one of our favorite types of jewelry. The demand for coral continues to grow despite new trade and harvesting regulations.  All of our coral jewelry is vintage and has been in the U.S. for many years. Coral is an organic gemstone and unfortunately, coral reefs are endangered. They are threatened by warming ocean waters, harmful bacteria, pollution, and destructive fishing methods. Fine coral jewelry is getting rarer and more expensive all the time. The prices have tripled in the last 2 years. Think of buying coral like an investment, the price of coral jewelry will go up, because the supply is very limited.

The premier coral on the market is still "oxblood" red coral which is from the species Corallium. Most of it is harvested in the deep waters of the Mediterranean, and then polished and cut in Italy or Japan. Pink or Angel skin coral is always popular and commands a high price too. We have some pieces that are nearly impossible to find elsewhere.  Lots of our customers say they didn't even know there were so many different types and colors of corals.  Did you know it occurs naturally in lavender, black, blue, white, and of course every spectrum of red. Many people have never seen real Apple or Tiger coral.  You have not been able to import it into the USA for decades, so the only sources are antique and vintage pieces. We also have a great supply loose coral beads available, if you want to make your own jewelry. Please contact us if you are looking for coral jewelry you can't find, we have a lot more coral than we can list.
