The Venancia Necklace
Made in Merida, Mexico
Red coral is said to absorb negativity, support friendships, invoke optimism in the wearer, and encourage romantic love. It motivates the user to pursue ambitions and is believed to protect you from depression, as it calms the emotions and brings inner peace. It is a wonderful tool to use during visualization as it also stimulates the imagination. In physical healing, Coral helps with bladder and kidney conditions, stimulating tissue regeneration and strengthening the circulatory system.
Coral jewelry was in vogue during the Victorian era and is still popular today, even as it has become more and more scarce as many reefs have come under government protection. Subsequently, a piece of Coral jewelry that has been passed down through the generations is a precious item indeed.
Because it is very soft, it must be treated with great care. It should be cleaned with a soft, clean cloth and then rinsed in warm, soapy water. It should never be soaked, nor put in an ultrasonic cleaner, nor subjected to a jewelry dip.
