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 Pendant is a ridiculously red cabochon of sponge coral, polished to a high gloss. We call this the official color 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 color that gets you into trouble.
We turned up the heat even more by framing the 60-carat coral teardrop in a beaded sterling setting, handcrafted by the master silversmiths of Bali. Complete the look by adding the necklace, which features 100 carats of smooth, polished red coral beads. The strand secures with a unique sterling clasp that glitters like a treasure of antiquity thanks to elegant beadwork and the added sparkle of marcasite. You can complete the set with a pair of matching earrings, each featuring a 10-carat dollop of romantic color from a sterling silver French hook. Red hot has never looked cooler.
