Coral Earrings – Various Designs
Native Americans have been making and wearing coral earrings for
generations. Coral is an increasingly popular material with
artists, due to its beautiful color and durability.
At SilverTribe it is our mission to provide the public with access
to the finest coral earrings available. We partner traditional
jewelry making with modern technology to bring you our extensive
collection of handmade coral earrings.
Depending on the tribe, a coral earring can be worn to show status,
tribe affiliation, and of course, just to be fashionable. While
coral is commonly referred to as a stone (even in this writing) it
is actually the skeletal structure of polyps, which is a living
organism that forms colonies known as reefs.
Although coral was not used until the arrival of the Spanish
Conquistadors, it's hard to imagine Native American jewelry without
this wonderful and versatile material. No jewelry collection should
be without a pair of coral earrings.
The most popular styles of coral are a bright red color, yet it is
available in many shades and color variations, including white and
pink. Pink coral earrings are believed by some cultures to
represent love and compassion.
At SilverTribe we offer a wide selection of coral earrings to suit
any need, and for any occasion. We stock many different styles that
include the very simple coral stud earring, to an elaborate Navajo
version, and even different styles of dangle and bead earrings.
Maybe you need a set of hoop earrings; well you can't go wrong with
a beautiful pair of coral inlay hoop earrings. For those who still
prefer not to pierce their ears, we also carry a large selection of
Sterling silver is the most favored and most commonly used metal in
the making of coral earrings. Let's not forget about gold and its
stunning contrast to the bright red coral.
Both metals can be used as a simple setting to show the beauty of a
piece of coral or to create an elaborate and beautiful backdrop for
a coral earring masterpiece. Coral by itself is known to be a
soothing influence. This may be due to the link between the
polyps and all life in the oceans.
Whatever the occasion, and whatever your mood, we can find a pair
of beautiful coral earrings to match your needs.
At SilverTribe, we strive to offer the best variety at the best
prices available. Explore our massive inventory of Native American
