Each shell has unique colors and patterns, so of you would like to choose your shell just send me a message before or after purchase for photos.

"Abalone shell is created on the inner layer of the shells of mollusks in the genus Haliotis. It is made of a blend of minerals (called nacre) that are secreted by the oyster and deposited on the inside of its shell for protection, yet it also results in a lovely iridescent sheen. Abalone shell was used by Native Northwest American Indians for cleansing, offerings and prayers, as well as jewelry (of course!) Abalone is also thought to help calm emotions like the waves of the tide, clearing fear and sorrow from the heart chakra.

Two sizes are available, and are shown for size comparison in the last photo. The large pair is approx. 1 3/8" x 5/8" from the top of the ear wire and uses 14mm focal point beads. The smaller pair is approx. 1 1/4" x 1/2" an uses 12mm focal point beads.

Other shimmery abalone shell and lustrous pearl jewelry from the Modern Mermaid Collection are designed to coordinate with this piece. The goal of Modern Mermaid Collection is to help today's classy woman show her inner carefree and graceful mermaid. The collection combines colorful abalone shell, lustrous pearls, and whimsical wire work to create magical art jewelry. Visit https://www.etsy.com/shop/KosmicKrystals?section_id=18841145&ref=shopsection_leftnav_2 to see the rest of the jewelry in the Modern Mermaid Collection.

Each piece of jewelry also comes with a non-tarnish strip that prevents tarnish by absorbing and trapping the sulfides and other pollutants in the air. If kept in a sealed bag or jewelry box with your silver jewelry the strip will prevent tarnishing for approximately 6 months. Abalone is a delicate shell and should not be cleaned with silver polish, however it can be cleaned with a gentle toothbrush and warm soapy water.

These earrings are hung on sterling silver ear wires, which are generally non-irritating. If you are allergic to silver just send me a message and I can change your ear wires to titanium wires, which are slightly darker but hypoallergenic.

Nice hair pins. The color of the stone is slightly different than the picture. It is not as blue, but i still like it. Great seller, but 4 stars and not 5 because the delivery time was awfull. It took one week to go from a "minor" town to Los Angeles, then to Sydney, which is amazing. Good job from USPS. Then Sydney to Alice springs took 2 WHOLE WEEKS, as slow as a regular mail. I got them too late and just asked myself if OZ post office knew what meant "PRIORITY" mail. You pay a nice extra for the same service...
