Two-Tone Coral Necklaces


Things have been a bit jewelry-centric (RE: girly) around here this week, but would you look at these two-tone coral necklaces from LEIF?? They’re stunning. And I can’t apologize for stunning, now can I. (via Cargoh)

    It’s real coral, Katie. Which means I won’t be buying it, because it IS endangered.

    If it is found on the seashore it is already dead. (No problem.) But, if they are cutting it off a reef it is very bad.

      Thanks for the comments, both sides of the argument are valid ones. I’m not sure where the artist sources her coral, however.

    I NEED THESE! All three of them! They’re beautiful, it would be nice to know where they come from however.

    I’ve emailed the artist to see if we can’t get to the bottom of this question.

    Here we go! Straight from the seller’s mouth:

    “the necklaces use broken pieces of coral that are washed up on shore and therefore already dead.”

    thanks for the eco-concerns, friends!

    When the coral dies it slowly degrades and dissolves back into the ocean as calcium carbonate, so even dead coral needs to stay in the sea. CO2 in the atmosphere is reducing the amount of calcium carbonate available to organisms so every little shell and dead piece of coral is required for calcifying species (such as shellfish, crustaceans, bony fish and corals). Buy and then throw back in the sea ladies!!

    Love the colours but coral is endangered, so not sure I agree with this (sorry!)

      Adele, read through the comments. I think you’ll feel better about them. Kelly
