Each earring contains a 15 mm green paua shell circle set in a gunmetal plated bezel setting and dangling from a gunmetal plated ear wire.
The bottom of the earrings dangle approximately 33 mm from the top of the ear wire. Optional clear backings are included (see image 4).
Paua shell is a natural shell from New Zealand that has a rainbow-like iridescence and is closely related to the shell known as abalone in the US. These particular specimens have been dyed green and coated with epoxy resin for protection and stability. The colors mutate from dark green to bright green as they move through the light. Each one is slightly different in patterning and coloring, so the ones you receive may vary from the images shown.
Although I have done my best to photograph the color of this item accurately, please allow for variations in monitor settings and for the fact that the photo is taken under high powered lights.
