Beautiful cowrie shell encased in sterling silver. I have two different ones, the first photos show the smaller one which hangs on a 20” sterling silver snake chain the second one is bigger, shown in the last photos and hangs on an 18" sterling silver curb chain. According to African legend, if you are attracted to cowrie shells you could be family to an Ocean Spirit. It also represents the Goddess protection which is very powerful and connected with the strength of the ocean. Wearing a cowrie shell will connect the wearer to the ocean and this shell is known to represent wealth, good luck and fertility!These necklaces look amazing layered with seaglass, amazonite and larimar pendants. Let me know if you want to turn this into a layered necklace and I can help with the chain lengths to get the perfect combo.
