You get the color you need with this fantastic Spiny Oyster! Some days all we want is a pop of color -- Spiny Oyster is where we find this sunny, chili pepper red/orange in western jewelry ... and also here at LBJ!
We call this the Hanging Rock pendant or necklace. We wanted a modern and dramatic presentation for these fabulous, cushion triangle spiny oyster cabochons while having the flexibility of a pendant that will center itself on an adjustable chain. The original mounting of the double bails along the top of the pendant allows you to move it freely while the specially chosen, substantial, sterling silver chain closes at 16 or 18 inches. Price includes the chain. Each spiny oyster cab is more beautiful;l than the next - let us know if you want to see what's available.
Spiny Oyster 14X25mm
Pendant measures 1 1/8 X 3/4 inch
All metal is .925 Sterling Silver
Price includes .925 Sterling Silver Chain
Spiny Oyster was used by Native American artists to make inlays in fine jewelry. It comes from the shell of the bivalve mollusk, Spondylus various. Like many other bivalve mollusks, the soft, meaty interior of Spondylus is edible, so the Spiny Oyster’s valued for its hard, outer shell as well as its interior meat. Despite its name, the Spiny Oyster’s much more closely related to the scallop than to the true oyster.
