WES167, Sponge Coral Ring
Sterling silver, sponge coral
By Camilla West
This sterling silver hallmarked statement ring is made with natural sponge coral, which produces the fascinating red and yellow patterning and amazing organic texture. Because the coral isn't as hard as a crystal gemstone (more like a pearl), this is a ring to be worn occasionally rather than daily and a certain level of care must be taken. UK size N.
Sponge coral is a completely different species from red coral (which can be controversial). It is not on any sort of official environmental watch list and it does not live in the same ecosystem as endangered reef corals.
