Earthy and organic vintage 30's sterling silver and operculum shell/shiva's eye screw back earrings. Layers of beautiful colors, green, cream, beige and brown adorn the beautifully bezeled shells. Simple and magical, these shells were very popular during the Victorian era and were again popular during World War II, when sailors collected them for good luck. Jewelry was made from these "protective eyes" for their lovers to wear while they were away. Marked sterling.

Measure approx. 1" x 1".

Very good condition (a small natural hole on the top of the left earring. can't be seen when worn.)
