Ancient Romans believed that wearing coral would protect children, and hung pieces of it around their necks. Women wore it as a charm against sterility. It was thought to quiet tempests and insure that the wearer would never be struck by lightening. The stone became very popular during the Victorian Era, where it was incorporated, usually by Italian jewelers, into all forms of decorative wear. The bright, warm hue and the lore of protection appealed to the symbolic trends of the time.
Set in 15 karat yellow gold, this antique ring has five coral stones placed in gradation across the face. A lovely stacker, just like a little band of fire to wear on your hand!
