Sorry, this item sold. You may also like:
I found this shell while walking along a beach here in New England during one of my "treasure hunts", and made a mold of it so I could cast it in sterling silver. To accentuate the beautiful natural texture I applied a light patina, darkening the crevices. Peaking out from the center is a genuine white freshwater pearl, giving this beach-themed necklace the perfect finishing touch.
The pendant hangs from a 17.5 inch delicate sterling silver cable chain that is finished off with a lobster claw clasp. The silver shell itself is about 22mm tall and about 14mm at its widest point, and around 15.5mm deep.
This necklace can be washed gently with mild soap and a soft cloth, or you may use a jewelry polishing cloth to remove any tarnish. I recommend keeping the piece stored in a plastic bag or in an anti-tarnish jewelry box when not in use. I don't recommend using silver polish or cleaner on this as it could damage the pearl and the patina finish.
Your purchase will come in a small jewelry/gift box with a strip of anti-tarnish paper inside to help keep it looking new.
