ABOUT CORAL: In ancient Greece, coral was used as an amulet to prevent accidents, particularly for children, near bodies of water. It was thought that coral protects the wearer, so it was a traditional gift to children. Whitish colour coral has been worn to deepen the bonds of affection, while the pinker or reddish shades are claimed to attract passionate love.
