Naga Shell Earrings - SOLD
A warm and creamy neutral with a touch of greenish turquoise for a little added color. Totally understated with Niobium earwires that enhance the earthy quality that eliminates any "bling" quotient. If you're earthy and natural, these may become your favorite go-to earrings. Naga shell is named for the Naga tribe in NE India, although the beads are generally cut in Nepal. The use of this white conch (also called chank) shell for adornment is steeped in rich ceremonial history and these shell beads are a very important symbol of tribal and cultural identity. These wonderful little earring dangles are 1 3/4" long and about 3/4" wide. They weigh about 5 grams - about as much as a US nickel.
