This sterling silver pendant features a beautiful carved rose in orange spiny oyster shell and a Kingman Turquoise stone. Both are set in a silver bezel and surrounded by rope or beaded silver accents and 2 small silver flowers. The bail on the pendant comprises 3 spinning rings - great for fidgety fingers. The bail will fit small beaded necklaces or chains (the matching beaded necklace shown in the photos is sold separately). All metal is solid 925 sterling silver.
In ancient South American cultures, spiny oyster shells were more valuable than gold and silver. Only Shamans or elders were allowed to wear or use them.
Spiny oyster shells are found only in the Gulf of California. They are challenging to harvest and polish which makes spiny oyster much sought after by collectors.
Pendant dimensions: 21 x 55 mm (3/4 x 2-14 inch)
Comes with an 18” solid 925 sterling silver chain. The matching beaded turquoise necklace shown in the photos is available separately.
The one-of-a-kind pendant is ready for shipping and will be shipped within 24-72 hours from purchase. You will receive the exact pendant and chain pictured above in a gift box with a ribbon.
FREE silver polishing cloth included with all orders of $20 or more.
Julie did it again! This pendant with the combination of colors present in the turquoise and spiny oyster make a gorgeous piece. I am so pleased with this purchase for my daughter.
