When on holiday I spend idle hours window shopping which I could never afford at home. I admire the handicrafts in shops designed to tempt the relaxed holiday-maker into parting with their money. Here on the coast of Sardinia there are many jewellery shops filled with coral jewellery, harvested from the seas around Alghero.
Although it’s attractive, I always thought that it was better to enjoy the beauties of the sea by diving or snorkling, rather than removing shells or coral and destroying the natural environment. Am I wrong? It’s obviously not such a concern here in Sardinia. But if I’m tempted I think I’d rather splash out on the intricate gold or silver filigree jewellery which is also a traditional craft here in Sardinia.
