Tiny Cowries

These diminutive, ridged shells are actually a type of Allied Cowry, also called trivia shells, and are a close relative of cowries. Amazingly, these little shells are full adult size! Trivias like these are found in a number of places around the world, including Hawaii; Hawaiian trivias only reach a maximum size of 5mm.

Details

Our Sterling Silver Tiny Cowries Gemstone Choker features 3 little sterling silver cowries with beautiful violet iolites and purple amethysts. These rare cowries are found empty in the sand; we never take things alive from the sea. After making molds from these intricately detailed little shells we make wax copies, and add loops onto each one by one. They’re then cast in low-tarnish sterling silver before finally getting ground, filed and prepped for soldering into the chain. Lastly, we hand-wire each gemstone into the chain with sterling silver wire.
