Timeless and stylish, these pretty ear studs are beautiful for daytime as well as evening wear. In their simplicity, these earrings make a sculptural, contemporary statement.

A pair of delicately beautiful operculum shells are bezel set in a combination of oxidized fine silver and sterling silver.

These hand made ear studs measure just over 15 mm in diameter, or 5/8 inch in diameter.
The ear nuts are extra large for added comfort and stabilization.

Ready to ship; this listing is for the earrings in the pictures.

A note on the operculum:
The operculum, meaning "little lid", is a corneous or calcareous anatomical structure which exists in many (but not all) groups of sea snails and freshwater snails, and also in a few groups of land snails.
The operculum serves as a sort of "trapdoor", sealing the entrance of the seashell when the soft parts of the animal are retracted.

Feel free to contact me if you have a special materials wish! Pricing varies according to materials and the size of the earrings.
