I guess I was a little obtuse in my post. I wasn't suggesting (on a
forum for jewelers, not consumers, mind) a boycott by consumers of
natural coral jewelry; I was suggesting that we, as designers, might
want to consider no longer using coral at all.
You seem to be suggesting that this coral is under threat by all
sorts of things except jewelers. If you want to go with that, fine
by me. But for everyone else please consider: at one point ivory was
considered to be the only suitable material to make piano keys.
