Regal and bold, this Hanging Shell Choker and Earring Set makes a dramatic addition to any ensemble. The cowrie shell is an important symbol that is steeped in a rich, ancient tradition in Africa. It symbolizes both spiritual connection to the ocean and goddess and material, earthly wealth. The necklace is a choker-style necklace made of black beads. There are rows of polished white cowrie shells hanging from it in a breast-plate design. Comes with matching dangly earrings of cowrie shells and black beads. The necklace is 7.5” in length and will adjust up to 24”. Earrings are 3” in length.
