Lovely polished pendeloque shaped coral earrings with a minimally patterned 18K gold "cap" setting off the top of each pendeloque shaped coral, which further links to a pretty gold ball. The deep rose pink color of our earrings are the most sought after color of coral. The use of coral in jewelry started in Roman times, and where the superstitions about coral began. Coral was thought to be a talisman against evil spirits. Its popularity continued into the Middle Ages well into the Georgian and Victorian eras, when coral was considered "daytime" jewelry. The earrings are 2 inches long. c1850
