In ancient Egypt coral jewels were popular during the times of Ptolemy, over 2000 years ago. Coral was traded across the ancient and modern world via established trade routes to Italy, where the major workshops were located, and then to Central Europe, Siberia and the Celtic countries, while other types of coral traveled from the Indian Ocean across Asia to Tibet and Mongolia.The Victorians adored coral, carving it into delicate roses and cameos and since the late 1800's, American Indians have incorporated red coral into many of their jewelry designs. Today coral is equally prized in jewelry making, while live corals and products such as coral rock have become increasingly popular in the marine aquarium trade. Since ancient times coral was believed to cure madness, give wisdom, prevent sterility, calm storms, promote positive forms of social activity and provide protection against plague and pestilence. It was also thought to enable travelers to cross rivers safely. Red coral symbolizes attachment and devotion.
Amongst tribal cultures past and present it is universally believed to ward off the evil eye and bad luck, and it is still common for children and young women to wear coral necklaces for protection. In Vedic astrology red coral is associated with the planet Mars. The item "VINTAGE 14K GOLD CORAL & DIAMOND RING PINK SALMON CORAL CARVED 7 grs scrape" is in sale since Sunday, April 21, 2019.
