A fragmented tuatua (clam) shell takes pride of place on a slim elongated chain link necklace. Shell's rim has ben partly hand gilded with 18k gold.

Shell fragment has been naturally sea-tumbled forming a smooth unique shape. No two shells are alike so shape, texture, colour and size may slightly vary from the one pictured. So just like the wearer, each shell pendant is unique!

It's lovely warm amber colour is caused by mineral discolouration from the many years of being buried under the sand.
