Blue Octocoral Earrings – Studs
$135.00 – $185.00
Small, light and delicate – wonderful earrings that celebrate the Hawaiian reef, blue octocorals are our own little snowflakes of the sea. These stud earrings are very light (great for sensitive ears).
Also known as Blue Soft Coral, the pretty little octocoral polyps are often found on the reef clinging to rocks in rough, surgy areas. Measuring only a few millimeters across, they can be easy to overlook due to their size and color, but on closer examination, they are beautiful bouquets ranging from blue to purplish-brown. Called ‘octo’ because of their eight-fold symmetry, they lack the hard skeletons of most of the corals of Hawaii. These snowflake-like corals look delicate, but are hardy survivors and are endemic to Hawaii.
