Coral has been coveted and used in jewellery as early as in Ancient Egypt. Among the Romans, branches of coral were hung around children's necks to preserve them from danger, and the substance had many medicinal virtues attributed to it. The belief in Coral's potency as a charm continued throughout the Middle Ages and even early in 20th century Italy it was worn as a protection from the Evil eye, and by women as a cure for Infertility. Whilst coral isn't sourced for these purposes anymore, it remains a very popular material in jewellery or for objects, due to its warm orange tonalities.
