A beautifully carved Victorian coral pendant showcasing a bouquet of blooms that includes tulips, forget me nots, and holly. The coral displays a deep orange hue reminiscent of an early morning sunrise. It is backed with a 9K yellow gold frame and would look amazing paired with a long chain or even a ribbon. For at least 30,000 years, people have been adorning themselves with coral. Ancient Romans believed that coral calmed ocean waves while the Victorians wore coral beads as talismans to ward off evil spirits and as good luck charms.
