Hey there sexy mermaid, we found you this fabulous necklace! A luxurious string of glowing natural shells is enhanced by cleverly hidden pearls, making it a total stunner from either side. A drool-worthy, one of a kind adornment for all you marine goddesses out there.
Natural shells and manufactured pearls with a sterling silver clasp and silver beads on original string. Measures 18" long; shells 1-1.25" wide with largest front and center. Very good condition with minor chips to edges. One shell at back has a chip at the top, exposing the interior which retains a dreamy little sand deposit from the ocean (see last photo).
Most shells at the beach are mollusks but figuring out which species you’ve found is a daunting challenge – there are more than 100,000 shells in the mollusk phylum! A spiral shell like these indicates a snail, perhaps, related to the superb Gaza, which has taller chunkier whorls than the smooth surface of this necklace's shells. Check out our Deep Sea Snail Clips for comparison.
