Red hot Coral nuggets and faceted shell pearls along with two curvy carved clear crystal Quartz beads all come together to create this striking asymmetrical necklace. The beads are separated by silver-plated lead-free Pewter (USA made) spacer beads. A pair of elegant, yet simple red Coral earrings complements the necklace. Perfect for the hot Summer or cool Winter wardrobes.
Coral beads have been significant throughout history. People of many cultures thought that red coral provided protection from fire and violence.
Shell Pearls are synthetic or man-made to look and feel like real South Sea Pearls. They are also known as Majorca Pearls. The core of the pearl is of the shell or 'Mother of Pearl' of the south sea oyster. This core is shaped to the required size. To this core is applied and re-applied a mixture of powdered shell, fish scales and oils to create the much sought after pearly luster. After heat treatment and coloring the results are simulated pearls that are more durable, more uniform and much more affordable than the real South Sea Pearl.
Rock Crystal or Crystal Quartz is the colorless and transparent variety of natural Quartz. Quartz is the most common mineral on earth and comes in an exhaustive range of colors and varieties. It is the alternative affordable birthstone for those born in April, standing in for the traditional and expensive Diamond. It is also the stone to celebrate the 15th wedding anniversary. Since ancient times, many cultures have associated clear Crystal Quartz with spiritual uses, and it was used to make Crystal Balls to foretell the future.
