Sterling Silver Tiny Cowry Stud Earrings

$99.00

 

You’ll love the fine detail of these Sterling Silver Tiny Cowry Stud Earrings. Intricate ridges follow the curve of each shell in perfect unison, like the waves on the sea. These versatile earrings are great styled with our Cowry Necklaces or other tiny shell pieces.

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 Cowry Stud Earrings feature a little sterling silver cowry hand-soldered onto sterling silver posts. These rare cowries are found empty in the sand; we never take things alive from the sea. After making molds from the intricately detailed little shells we make wax copies, cast them low-tarnish sterling silver, and finally grind, file, solder and polished.

 

  • Tiny Cowries each measure 7 x10mm

  • Sterling silver shells and posts
  • Lead and nickel free
