Cowrie Shell Bracelet
The Posh Totty Designs Cowrie Shell Bracelet features half a Cowrie shell suspended in the centre of a fine trace chain bracelet. The organic curves of the shell are pleasingly tactile, and while this bracelet charm may appear simple, it has a valuable, historic significance. Used for centuries as currency all over the ancient world from Africa and The Middle East to Latin America and India, this humble shell now symbolises wealth and womanhood. The Posh Totty Designs Cowrie Shell Bracelet is inspired by an actual tidal Cowrie shell from Tulum, Mexico. Handmade by our jewellers in Brighton in 925 sterling silver, or plated in 18ct rose or yellow gold, this bracelet will appeal to ocean lovers, and complements the other beautiful shore-inspired jewellery pieces in the Tidal Seashell jewellery collection.
925 sterling silver with optional 18ct yellow or rose gold plating. Our gold plated items are compliant with the Assay nickel release test (BS EN 1811:1998 and BS EN 12472) therefore they are suitable for those with nickel allergies.
