The Ancient Greeks and Romans prized red coral for its ability to protect against evil and misfortune. But what protected them against the seductive powers of the sultry red gem? Our Fire Coral Earrings consists of a string of ridiculously red sponge coral beads, polished to a high gloss. We call this red the official colour of passion. This is the red that every other red secretly wants to be. It smacks of wet lipstick and smoldering coals. This is the kind of colour that gets you into trouble.Our Fire Coral Earrings feature 20-carats of smooth, polished red coral beads.
