Product Description

The smooth and shiny porcelain like white shell was used for centuries as currency in Africa, China and India. Cowry shells are also worn as jewelry or otherwise used as ornaments or charms. They are viewed as symbols of womanhood, fertility, birth and wealth. The historical value and tradition of the cowry shell is still respected today in Africa. Putting a somewhat modern spin on the shell the jewelers of Niger have transformed this natural beauty into an elegant fashion accessory by dipping the ends in pure African silver and attaching silver posts.
