Jeweler Guilty of Selling Illegal Black Coral Jewelry

Sterling Canyon reports on the illegal trade of Black Coral and the jeweler that was found guilty of peddling it. Some species of Black Coral are an endangered species and is often associated with poachers from China and Taiwan.Court documents now show that the company that operates the Bernard K. Passman chain of jewelry stores will pay $2.5 million in fines after pleading guilty to knowingly accepting illegal shipments of endangered black coral.

Some jewelers are desperate to increase sales and will go to great lengths to offer usual and sometimes beautifully illegal items.  folks, don’t buy coral jewelry, especially black and red coral.  Both are endangered.  There are legitimate jewelers that sell white coral that is dyed black or red but that fact must be disclosed to the customer.  Sterling Canyon sells the finest Sterling Silver and gemstone necklaces and earrings.  No need to impress our customers with black coral jewelry.  Our Sterling Silver does that by itself.
