Inspiration on How to Style Your Pieces from Coquí el Original®
The Significance of Our Coquí Tree Frog Jewelry
The coquí is a type of tree frog native to Puerto Rico. Green, brown or yellow in color, these small frogs are known for their distinct call (“ko-kee”), which can be heard all around the island and all throughout the year from dusk until dawn. The scientific name of the species is Eleutherodactylus, meaning “free toes” in Greek. It is the only frog in all of the Americas that has no tadpole stage. They go directly from egg to coquí.
Coquí spend their nights in the forest canopy and shelter, on the ground under rocks and logs, and in gardens during the day. The common coquí has a long history of cultural significance in Puerto Rico, appearing in folklore and eventually becoming a widespread symbol of the island. At Coquí el Original®, our Coquí Design immortalizes this little frog’s legacy in gorgeous sterling silver .925 and 14k yellow gold pieces.
