You are looking at a shiny silver tone Paua Shell Teardrop or Pear-Shaped Dangle Italian charm. This beautiful charm has a silver tone teardrop dangle with a smooth silvertone edging, that forms a picture-frame surrounding the paua shell insert. The unique colorings of the Paua shell are produced by the rich sediments in New Zealand waters.
Although we have included photos of 9 paua shell charms, this is only to show the variety of colors they come in. You may purchase as many paua shell charms as there are available, but please do not request a specific charm from the picture since these are not all available, but they are all beautiful. Each paua shell is unique and special, and reflects different colors depending upon the angle from which it is viewed, similar to opal or a hologram.
What a lovely gift for anyone... or why not add it to your own bracelet?
