Farac - Coral Branch Vermeil Bangle

The Coral Branch Vermeil Bangle is inspired by a genuine piece of Adriatic coral. To make it stand out, Farac handcrafted the bangle from recycled sterling silver and polished it to a high mirror finish. He then applied a high-quality 24K gold plating on it.

 

This bangle is a part of Farac’s ‘Coral Collection’ which also includes a necklace and earrings.

 

 

Coral Collection

 

Back in the 15th and 16th centuries, coral harvesting was an integral part of Dubrovnik’s local commercial industry. The majority of the fishermen came from Kolocep, Mljet, and Lastovo, and the most extensive coral colonies were found around the tiny island of Saint Andrew (Sv. Andrija).

 

During the Renaissance, women from Dubrovnik wore coral strands around their necks, leading many of Dubrovnik’s goldsmiths to incorporate coral motifs into various designs of earrings, bracelets, brooches, as well as buttons used on traditional clothing.

 

In 1664, the local government prohibited most women from wearing coral necklaces due to the Republic’s financial difficulties. However, noblewomen were exempted from the prohibition.  Over time, this law was eventually forgotten, and women from the villages surrounding Dubrovnik began to wear gold necklaces (kolarin) again, making coral-inspired jewelry a cherished local custom.

Genom att kombinera äldre mer traditionella metodar med nyare teknik, Farac-smycken är ett bevis på äkta hantverk och känsla for detaljer.

Varje Farac-bit är handgjord av 100 % återvunnet sölv och/eller guldlegeringar.
