    Personally, I love the color because it works much better on me than pink. That said, it's pretty bold, and I think pairs well with white, gold, or creamy pearls. It might also look fabulous with electric green tahitians, or even navy blues (like Red's gorgeous strand).

    Of course I will be keeping an eye on jewelry trends heading into the spring.

    No, Midge said, I take it back. I wouldnt get a mink coat the first thing. Know what Id do? Id get a string of pearls. Real pearls. Yes, Annabel said, slowly. I think thats a kind of a good idea. And it would make sense, too. Because you can wear pearls with anything.

    There is a Coral torsade bracelet I've seen in a little shop. It is really expensive (too expensive), but I really want to re-design it with pearls..I keep thinking about it, if I can sneak a pic I'll post it here.

    KB- I don't see it anymore I think it was either moved, or someone snagged it for the Holidays. Just as well, more room in my 2019 budget for other design ideas

    Hi coral-friends, I must admit I really love the Living Coral shade. It is in a sweet spot between orange and red and white for me. Just like the best feathers of the Flamingos I saw yesterday ... which made me order the following - small 6mm max. beads but I love the vivid coulours and those fine lines on the beads from the coral stem surface. I am thinking of adding some yellow 18ct gold disks and making a long rope. Cannot wait!

    Coral is perfect for summer! I love the tangerine and darker red shades and prefer Mediterranean coral above all others. Here's something I'm working on...

    I love the combination of orangey red and purple, MSC. Also the shape and luster on the coral.

    I’m always interested to know where people find their coral. May I ask if you picked these up in Italy?

    The color of the in-between beads is exquisite, a good match with the coral itself.

    Thank you, BN and Cliclasp!
    I did get the coral in Italy, in Florence on the Ponte Vecchio, in 2015. I got some beautiful round beads and cabs too. The prices were pretty good, compared to vendors stateside. Wish I would have bought more!
