Shell Lavalier Necklace
A beautiful and fun necklace with brown and cream shells set lavalier style, with shells around the neck and one hanging in a drop at the bottom. The shells all appear to be hand set in their bezels, indicating this was likely handmade at one time. As you can see in the photo with the model, this is striking against the skin, and its length is versatile, wearable with dresses and shirts alike.
HISTORY: Estimated 1980's
MATERIALS: Silver tone metal (note that this piece is marked as 925 sterling in a few places, but doesn't test as such), shell
SIZE: The chain around the neck measures slightly shy of 19". The drop portion of the necklace hangs 1 3/4" down. Each shell, while different, measures approximately 3/4" by 5/8".
CONDITION: Good condition. The one shell does have some minor chipping along the edge, and the necklace does have a patina to it which we've left largely intact.
