She wore it on an Italian terrace framed in by a clay roof with yellow-orange walls. She wore it while she held a glass of red wine fermented from the grapes she could see lining the hills around her, all the way to the horizon. She wore it while she slow danced with the handsome man who had given it to her, as the sun set into the Tuscan hills, turning everything around them pink and gold.

Wandering through crowds at the infamous Carnival of Paris, you smell lavender, incense and sugar in the distance. You maze your way through the colorful crowd of masks and costumes. Following your nose you duck under an array of purple, blue, and gold curtains. Suddenly, everything is silent, until you hear the faint chiming sound of bells. Curiosity tells you to keep walking. You find a room, a chamber with a round wooden table of tarot cards, and old leather-bound books with symbols on the spines. You sense someone behind you and you spin around. There she is. Miss Sapphira, the woman whose picture is on every Carnival poster around the city, the woman who tells fortunes. And she's been waiting for you. She’s wearing this ring.

Gladys and Charles Mumford were a highly skilled husband and wife duo who created jewelry in the British Arts and Crafts spirit. They started in Coventry, working for Winifred King and Mildred Murphy (who traded as W. King & Co). After visiting Falmouth on holiday and falling in love with it, they decided to move and set up a silversmith and retail shop in Falmouth. Rumor has it, they even sold their jewelry aboard Queen Elizabeth II. Gladys was the more accomplished silversmith of two and by 1963 they had both ceased trading. Their works are rarely, if ever, marked, but are very recognizable.

For centuries, coral was believed to protect the wearer, from evil, from sickness, and from pain. It’s been used decoratively since classical times. During the Georgian Era, coral was typically filed smooth and strung onto a necklace. Children of means would often wear a coral necklace, given to them from a loved one, to keep them safe. Of course, coral, especially red coral – the rarest and most expensive – was also fashionable. Jane Harley, the Countess of Oxford, wore a string of red coral around her neck. It was in vogue for the rich and the powerful. And honestly, I’m not convinced it ever went out of style.
