Story Behind the Art:
'My name is Neri and I love to design and craft beautiful handmade jewelry made from stones, pearls, and shells native to the Philippines Islands. In 2002, I started a small business with my family in the small provincial town of Minglanilla, Cebu selling whatever we could find in the local market. Slowly, I began to create and design jewelry to sell at the market. Business began to pick up and our family business began to grow. Eventually, we opened up a workshop in Minglanilla to create the handmade jewelry and accessories. Over time, we were able to open weekend shops in several Cebu City malls to sell our most popular designs. The work and travel is not easy, but it is rewarding.'

Personal choice on this necklace, but it was too large and gaudy for me. Didn't lay very flat. If you want a big bold piece, you'll probably like it.Read More

Very nice necklace that got compliments. I actually helped my Mum to buy another one of it because she fell in love with it when she saw mine. Except for the hook, the necklace was well hand made which made my Mum and I to change the hooks.Read More
If you are looking for an oversized necklace as a "statement" piece this item will be perfect.The item was slightly larger then what I expected but I am still happy with it. It feels very comfortable and not heavy even with its size. My only issue was not with the product but for some reason although my order qualifed for free shipping, the post office charged me $1.23 when picking up my package. I contacted Overstock, whom immediately issued me a refund. They were not sure why the vendor did that.Read More

It's stunning - and unusual
When you said its imported. Do you mean you imported the red coral? Where? Thanks
Thank you for contacting us, cck333. By imported we means that this is made in the Philippines. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
is that real red coral or color enhance coral?
Thank you for contacting us, cck333. The treatment codes on this are N and D; Treatment Code N: Those natural stones which are not currently known to be enhanced by any methods, such as spinel, and therefore can safely be presumed to be untreated have the code N (not enhanced). The code may also be used for stones that are sometimes or often treated but in this particular case are unenhanced. To use this symbol on sapphire, for example, which is generally heated, means that the seller certifies that the particular stone was not heated and can supply a document such as an invoice or lab report so stating. Enhancement Code D: Dyeing is the introduction of coloring matter into a gem to give it a new color or greater intensity. Please let us know if you have any further questions.
