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.
This Victorian era, antique silver coral and glass ring was handcrafted in Austro-Hungary around 1890.

She met a handsome man wandering the beach during that summer heat wave. He cooked her dinner and they ate by candlelight. He took her dancing in places she never would have found on her own.

There’s a joke about Wisconsin that goes like this: “Welcome to Wisconsin, where we have two seasons, Winter and ‘the other season’ ”. It’s true, winters here do seem to drag on a little too long and take up half the year. And while the winter here is beautiful I find that every once in while I have to hop on a plane and land somewhere (anywhere) lush and green. Just filling my eyes with the rich greens of the tropics does wonders for getting me through until May when the green starts edging back into my landscape. And in between trips to green places, I just pop on a ring like this, I find that a luscious emerald has the same effect on my psyche as a nice long walk in the jungle.
