About

Georgian coral is a breed apart from new coral. It is meltingly soft to the hand. It feels precious. There are no rough edges. The tips of each bit of coral are rounded rather than spiked. Each coral piece has been hand cut and polished to attain this surface. Age and the fact that it is natural give it its soft color.

Age makes a difference as well as it does in gold that we know of as patinated by age and wear. The beads are hand carved and engraved as well. Georgian coral is a rarity. Once you touch it and see the color, you love it. This lariat can be worn wrapped at the neck like a choker, It can be looped as in the photo and worn inside a shirt or out. The tie can hang in the front or the back of a low back dress. The color warms the skin and the heart as well. Perfect Condition
