Since harvesting of coral has pretty-much been eliminated now and the price has risen so much, you see a lot of perfect, flawless coral—a little too perfect. Natural coral has flaws as a result of a life in the sea. It's true that with enough buffing, the imperfections can be smoothed out, but… The coral in these earrings is unmistakably real and natural. Like a lot of things on this site, these earrings are extremely underpriced. Together, the twenty pieces of coral here are worth more than the price. Each earring is 1.25-inches long, and about 1 and 1/8th-inch wide. Weight per earring is 10.2-grams, or .355-ounces. Hallmarked. Always complimentary Priority shipping within the U.S.
