The gold details on the symbols are hand-applied in 18kt gold so each piece has a unique and personalized look.The earrings feature a perfectly round natural red coral bead detail on top.

Clara Stones uses genuine and authentic precious red coral Corallium rubrum. Our coral is sustainably sourced from Adriatic and Mediterranean Sea, completely natural and handcrafted using traditional artisanal methods and tools. No artificial chemicals or materials are used in the process to change its colour. Natural imperfections or inclusions are the nature of coral and organic materials and we think add to their beauty and not to be considered a flaw.
Our signature use of silver and gold fusion intricately blends together silver and 18kt gold to create a nice contrast. Organic 18kt gold details are applied by hand to the silver, and then oxidized , for a one-of-a-kind finish that with time and wear reflects the uniqueness of its wearer.
Each Clara Stones piece is as individual as you are!
Please note our jewellery is handcrafted in one-of-a-kind or limited editions using natural and organic materials and unique finishes, so sometimes it can vary in appearance and be slightly different than the photo. That is the nature of natural corals, pearls, gemstones and hand made items and makes each piece truly unique and only yours. We have taken care to ensure that the items on our website are presented as accurately as possible; however, colour and clarity will depend upon your own personal monitor and individual adjustments to the computer screen.
