Vintage Austro-Hungarian Silver Red Coral Ring Floral Motif

For centuries, coral was believed to protect the wearer from evil, from sickness, and from pain. 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 coral ring was likely handcrafted in Austria-Hungary. It’s dated, “18-7-53”, the date of July 18th, 1953. This silver stunner showcases five red-orange corals on the flower-themed ring face which measures 22.5 x 18 x 9 mm off the finger. The band width measures 1.5 mm at the back. This ring is a size 5.5 and it weighs 6 grams.

Ward off evil and look devilishly good doing it with these lovely and versatile coral studs.
