About
Coral shop Irena was founded in 1990, located in the historical town of Korčula. At the same location where my late grandfather had his jewellery, today is my inherited shop. I am a third generation, which nurtures and continues six decades long family tradition of making and designing jewellery. I am proud that the quality of our design recognized as ours, and world-famous fashion designers, actors, singers, photographers, and other to us very dear people.

Irena's multi generational family owned Coral Shop, was a highlight during my recent visit to Croatia. Located in historic Old Town, on the beautiful island of Korcula, the outstanding quality of her jewelry displayed in the windows beckons one in. Irena herself was a pleasure. I willl remember her kindness always. Her pieces are of the highest quality. And, Irena and family listen to the needs of you, the visitor and answers all your questions. Don't just believe me. Visit her website for all the awards and media praise. Better yet, if you are on Korcula check out Irena's Coral Shop yourself!

This shop was highly recommended by our tour guide, and she was SO RIGHT! Before buying, we were told all about the coral - the rules about sustainable harvesting, the differing colors, and a lot more. Everything was beautiful and the price points varied widely - so you don't have to have one of those "Jaz-Z 'Wanna Be'" yachts in the marina to buy something! We bought coral jewelry as souvenirs for our kids. We bought earrings for our girls, but struggled with what to get for our boys. Our saleslady knew of something that might work for us, but it was at another shop close by. She brought us over and introduced us to the salesperson there. And she was right! We ended up getting our boys simple pieces of coral on a simple black cord. We thanked her again on our way back to our apartment.

We were given a full history of coral farming and the different types of coral, quality and finishing. A guarantee comes with every purchase and she can change settings within 30 minutes.

Super friendly & very Professional!

Not cheap (3 simple bracelets for 150€) but definitely quality products. Highly recommended.

Irena's shop was a wonderful stop in Korcula. The coral jewelry is beautiful, and Irena is a delight to talk with, too. She can answer any question you have about the whole process from sea bottom to around your neck. If you like jewelry, you must stop in!

Irena's shop is no regular place. You will not only get beautiful and quality jewellery, but also a whole experience with lots of information abd knowledge. Irena is a specialist in her field, she goes above and beyond, a beautiful and kind person. Visit this place!

Today I bought my second Irena’s coral bracelet. The first one my mom bought me for my birtday ten years ago and is now worn by my little sister. Unique design and very plesant employee.

Irena knows Adriatic coral and everything about the beautiful town of Korcula. She is a great ambassador for her customers, her shop and her town. Right on the main walk thoroughfare just 10 meters or so from the cathedral.

I randomly walked into this store during my visit. I try to buy jewellery during my travels as souvenir and was looking for something unique in Croatia. Me and my friend randomly walked into Irena's shop and spent an amazing hour or so chatting with Irena and looking at some amazing pieces of jewellery! I decided to buy a bracelet, which was a little too big, so Irena made me some matching earring with the corals she took off from the bracelet to resize them! Now I have matching set. The jewellery here is so beautiful and unique, this is a definitely recommended stop in Korcula! And thanks for the lunch recommendation as well, that was one of the best meals I have had!!

To the beautiful Irena, thank you for your hospitality at your shop and beyond! Your pieces are one of a kind, like you. My visit to your shop was the most wonderful experience and is one I truly won't forget during my visit in Korcula. Special thanks also to Sandra for having patience in helping me find my most special piece of coral jewelry. You simply knew my taste and helped me make the most spectacular choice. Irena, I am forever grateful for your kindness. All the best to you in life! With the warmest regards, Michelle
