    Back in the day we used to use a lot or red and pink coral. But coral grows slowly (particularly the red deepwater coral) and demand grew quickly. So in the last two decades conservation measures came into place to protect the reefs and control harvesting. Coral is still available, but very, very expensive and in short supply. A lot of what you see called red coral in the shops is in fact a form of sea bamboo - but this is the real thing, Corallum Rubrum. Strung with gilded silver feature beads and some pink coral, this is a rare thing and relatively guilt free as this coral left the ocean long before it was a protected resource. Excuse the photos, I'm afraid it was too long to lie properly on the small bust used for photography. Nice feature gilded sterling silver clasp. 50cm.
