Corallium rubrum - the only precious specie of coral
CORAL ART JEWELRY
Adriatic coral (lat. Corallium rubrum)
is known worldwide for its strength, color and durability.
Croatia has a long tradition of harvesting coral and jewelry production.
The skill was acquired by Dalmatian fishermen
in the vicinity of Dubrovnik.
We are using material taken from experienced croatian divers (only 8 permits).
From controlled harvesting permitted by Croatian government.
Red coral is processed by simple tehniqes such is cuting and polishing before we combine with precious metals and gems adding to his already proven value.
World renown for its beauty, quality and color, red coral grows mostly on the shaded hills and reefs 10–100m (30’–300’) in the Mediterranean sea. Its Adriatic variety comes in a wide array of beautiful colors, from albino white, angelic pink to bright and dark red.
Corals used for our jewelry are harvested from the Adriatic Sea, protected and regulated by the Ministry of Fishing of the Republic of Croatia.
