I love the color of this inexpensive stuff. My first piece the round pin I found in an aunt's old jewelry box and have added a few more pieces over time.
But I do have a hint for you, keep this jewelry out of the sun, see that lovely necklace, well I had it on my dresser where the afternoon sun hits and now it's a brown coral color, not as pretty...

Vogue magazine did an article on coral color jewelry last year, I didn't see the article but right after the magazine came out the prices of this jewelry went way up on ebay .
Last time I checked it was reasonable again.

Those are some pretty pieces! I have several pieces of coral myself. They are done up in silver, some along with turqoise or by themselves. Because of the silver, I am able to clean them with a very soft toothbrush and a little toothpaste.

I got bounced today, somehow I didn't quite fit into the guidelines. That's okay, my post stands as is.

I have that exact necklace! Well, kind of, mine is missing a rose, so I have pried off the others and use them in craft projects.
