Two pieces of thick shell have been fashion together to make this exquisite high polished, mother of pearl pendant. There is a subtle increase in size from the base to the rim of pendant. Thus, "bongo" shaped. The lid is also made from a pretty mop shell.
The glossy sheen on this item is truly spectacular! There is truly a rainbow of iridescent colors. 2 small natural "dimples" are on the back of the pendant.
The rim, clasps and hinge on the pendant are made of sterling silver. Everything works perfectly and the lid fits snugly!
The chain was added to the pendant more recently and is not sterling it is a silver tone metal. Probably silver nickel. The thick 28" long chain allows the pendant to slip easily over your head!
This marvelous shell pendant/necklace is in EXCELLENT vintage condition!
