|The official color of passion The Ancient Greeks and Romans prized red coral for its ability to protect against evil and misfortune. But what protected them against the seductive powers of the sultry red gem? Our Fire Coral Necklace, Pendant and Earrings Set consists of ridiculously red sponge coral beads, polished to a high gloss. We call this red the official color of passion. This is the red that every other red secretly wants to be. It smacks of wet lipstick and smoldering coals. This is the kind of color that gets you into trouble. Our Fire Coral Necklace, Pendant and Earrings Set features 180 carats of smooth, polished red coral beads. The strand secures with a unique sterling clasp that glitters like a treasure of antiquity thanks to elegant beadwork and the added sparkle of marcasite. This set is complete with a pair of matching earrings, each featuring a 10-carat dollop of romantic color from a sterling silver French hook. Plus, a magnificent pendant that boasts 60 carats of extravagance. Red hot has never looked cooler.
