The far north of the Australian state of Queensland is home to the Great Barrier Reef, which is the largest coral reef in the world. Visitors travel from all over the globe to dive in the azure seas and experience this natural wonder, and its diverse and amazing marine life. It's no wonder that the beauty of coral has been used in jewelry for centuries, and still is to this day. Coral in jewelry form usually takes on a subtle red hue and looks fantastic in earrings, meaning that coral earrings make an ideal gift for a loved one, or even if you just want to treat yourself- and you know that you deserve it!
Don't worry about the natural world, it's not as though coral is still harvested from the Great Barrier Reef or any of the smaller, although equally beautiful coral reefs around the world. The majority of material found in coral earrings comes from fossilized coral, which has been reused for many years, meaning that you can wear natural beauty on your ears without worrying about harming Mother Nature.
While red is often seen as a color of intense emotion and passion, coral, with its slightly more subtle red coloring is traditionally seen as a source of calm and serenity, something those who dive under the water to explore coral reefs can attest to. Coral earrings, therefore, are great to give to someone who needs some calm and balance in their life, or are looking to get rid of anxieties or nervous tendencies. More so than other types of jewelry, coral earrings are an ideal way to look great and still feel a connection with nature.
