Red Coral Jewelry from Italy: Necklaces, Earrings, Ring and Beads
Italian Red Coral and the Antique Orange one from Sicily (the so-called Sciacca Coral) are the most traditional precious materials for jewelry of the Bel Paese.
Red necklaces, beads, earrings and rings are the core business of Eredi Jovon Venice since 1934!
The "Corallium rubrum" (generally called red Mediterranean coral) grows, is fished, worked in Italy and Italian Coral Jewelry is sold (since the Roman Empire) everywhere in the world!
The antique legend of Italian red coral gemstone: The legend says that when Perseus cut the head of Medusa, her blood went to the sea and transformed the aquatic plants into corals. This antique Italian tradition takes its roots on roman times: coral jewelry has been given to mothers that nursed their children; the Italian grandmas was used to say if milk had been good coral would had kept red and brilliant
What about fishing and respect for nature? Genuine Coral is draw out in the Mediterranean Sea: it's a selective hunting respectful of nature and provided by licensed brave divers because at Eredi Jovon we respect environment!
Red Coral Necklace Bracelet and beads
Which are the parameters for the best red coral beads necklace? To simplify the question, we’ll talk about a regular chain with round pearls
We need to create a first distinction: not all red spheres are coral and not all red corals are the genuine and real Italian one. Why we make this premise? Because an Italian red coral bracelet or necklace are rare piece of jewelry and naturally, like everything that is unique, they’re expensive.
These are the 3 most important parameters to get the best necklace at a fair price
• Coral Beads size:
Corallium Rubrum grows slowly so diameter of the red pearls is fundamental and makes its price
• Spheres Quality:
Every stone has different grade of quality and purity, red coral is not an exception, just remember that perfection simply doesn’t exists. First choice coral string is not perfect, only plastic is without faults.
• Dark Red Color Beads Necklace in Coral
This has never been a parameter but if everybody wants the chain to be almost unnaturally red, the seller who got a (just a little bit) deeper color bead, cabochon or branch will naturally ask you for the double of the price!
Red Coral Earrings and Rings
Cabochons of “Corallium Rubrum” are than shaped by hand in our workshop to obtain a wide (the largest in Italy) selection for genuine red coral jewelry.
Set is mostly done in 18 kt/750% gold since the top-quality metal is ideal to preserve the stone inside the bezel and offers the ideal support for a cross-generation piece of jewelry.
Real gold red coral earrings usually show stone shaped in
• Round (commonly called “pastille cut”)
• Tear Drop
I permit that those are usual cuts for a real and genuine coral earring because the main intent of the carver is to obtain the maximum from the rough branch of coral reducing the normal scrap that every stone requires. For example, a triangular cut will be quite impossible in a real pair of real red coral earrings.
Vintage Coral Jewelry
According to the times, we offer as well vintage red and orange “corallium” necklaces and pieces of antique Victorian coral jewelry.
Antique Corals from Sicily: The old Sciacca Coral
We sell old red beads chains and the famous orange antique coral from Sciacca (dated 19 th century). This kind of jewelry is extremely rare. Only the oldest firm can provide you such a kind of pieces. Since 1934 we fish, produce and sell engraved corals or beads according to the Italian ancient tradition. That's why we have some piece of Sciacca orange coral jewelry, one of the oldest products of Italian craftsmanship, and museum pieces that we keep for ourselves, but we'll be proud to show you in our private small wonderbox.
Red Italian Horn in Coral
For the "Belpaese" tradition the Italian red horn in coral on a gold necklace is the typical gift to celebrate the birth of a new baby: the cornicello on a chain will keep evil far from the newborn.
Let's say the Italian horn in yellow gold is a light version of the traditional amulet.
The lucky protecting stone for astrologist:
That's the reason why astrologist think this an amulet gemstone, something that deals with our ancient roots: coral is red like the blood, like the wine, like the Italian life!
