This is a necklace that my grandfather bought in Philippines during WWll. It has a 18in silver chain and 1in cream colored cowrie shells and a bigger brown cowrie 1 1/2in. Very beautiful and different from the cowrie that I am familiar with. The chain could use a cleaning but the shells are in excellent shape! If you have any more info on this piece or any questions please let me know! Thank you so much for stopping by!

Additional policies

I would like to mention that I will be putting my swan collection in my shop. Some are very old or vintage.Not sure about a few of them but they are at least between 10-20 yrs.old. I really still love them due to their beauty and gracefulness but with living in Florida for almost 10 yrs my love is all about the beach!!
