Coral Beads

Most people think that any type of coral can be used for jewelry, but, in fact, only two species (“Corallium rubrum” and “Corallium japonicum”) are used to make the familiar red jewelry. Pearls and coral are chemically similar (both are over 90% carbonic limes) Coral can grow up to 40cm tall with branches that are only 4cm thick. It is from this small part of the coral that materials are harvested to create jewelry. At first glance the coral is naturally dull with a matte finish to it. Only after polishing coral, does the glossy luster come out. It has a wide range of color from red to white, blue to black and brown.

Do not use any cosmetic products, hot water or bright intense light around coral. You should also avoid any hard blows or chemicals when wearing coral because of how porous the material is. It is a very popular first piece of jewelry for young girls, and is used to ward off evil spirits, soothe fears and tension. Helps aid difficulties of the lungs and digestion tract. Coral beads have been used as jewelry since prehistoric times. It has been found in Celtic tombs, and was a symbol of wealth in China during the Qing dynasty. Tibetan lamas still use coral rosaries, as coral is one of the seven treasures in Buddhist scriptures.

All the coral beads on this page are dyed to enhance color uniformity and appeal. It is recommended that you rinse these beads in lukewarm water and mild dish soap before working with them.
