Creepy bezel set operculum shell eyes peer at you from these sterling silver screw back earrings. Thanks to Susan at JewelsByDesign for helping identify the shell called operculum that makes these earrings so interesting. I have read that the Victorians loved making jewelry from these because they appreciated nature and wanted to incorporate it in their jewelry whenever possible. They were also believed to ward off the "evil eye" (Thanks Alicia, from boylerpf!) They are nicley crafted with a flower on the screw back. STERLING is marked on both earrings. 1/2" tall and 3/8" wide.
