Cowrie Shell Drop Earrings
Beach ready white natural cowrie shell boho earrings with 14K gold filled hooks.
All shells are treasures from the ocean but there is something special about the smooth porcelain-like cowrie shell found in the Indian Ocean and Sahara Desert. The ancient African people clearly valued the lightweight shiny cowrie because it functioned as one of the first forms of currency and symbolized prosperity and good fortune. Because of its popularity, other cultures from all over the world adopted the cowrie for trading too. While this unique egg-shaped shell no longer is used for bartering, you can value its beauty by wearing Estrella & Luna's cowrie earrings. These featherweight cowries compliment any color summer outfit and complete the ultimate breezy boho-chic look! Please take a peek in our carved shell collection for its matching necklace and bracelet.
