Antonino De Simone's private collection displays more than 300 rare and fine ethinic pieces made from coral fished and worked mainly in the Mediterranean area and presented according to local customs.
These beautiful jewels are evidence of the millenia-old links that have joined East and West through the renowned silk and spice routes, which were also travelled in reverse, from the Mediterranean sea to the Arabian peninsula and to the far East, thereby establishing the “coral routes”.
Precious cloths and exotic spices were exchanged for coral, our “red gold” which was highly valued for its blood-red colour, its unique composition and its mysterious origins from the depths of the sea.
Anniversary celebrations began in medieval times when people celebrated 25 and 50 years of marriage. A husband would crown his wife with a wreath of silver for 25 years and of gold for 50.
According to British-American tradition, anniversary gifts for weddings are chosen from a list of materials that are designated for each year. Each represents a different facet of the couple's commitment, the stage their relationship is at and the number of years they have been together.
The first wedding anniversary is symbolized with paper, and from there anniversary gifts become more and more precious to reflect the growing number of years a couple has remained together.
Coral is the most widely used theme for 35th anniversaries.
17th anniversary : turquoise
30th anniversary: pearl
35th anniversary: coral
35 years of living together are an important goal and should be marked in some special way.
