Naga Shell Earrings

Shell ear ornaments worn by Naga women. These earrings are cut from the shells of the giant gastropod Turbinella sp that lives in the Bay of Bengal. Shell ornaments, worn so far from the sea, are a sign of wealth and tribal ranking.

Vintage, with signs of wear equal to their age.

These beautiful earrings would also make lovely pendants.

Measurements: diameter approximately 5.6 cm
