Operculum Shell Pendant in Silver
From the Latitude Abrolhos Sea Shell Collection, a Sterling Silver Pendant featuring a Operculum Shell Charm cast from original shell shape from the beaches of the Abrolhos Islands.
Meaning: Operculum is a structure that closes or covers an aperture, in particular a secreted plate that closes the aperture of a gastropd mollusc's shell when the animal is retracted. In Shells we find children will refer to these as 'Mermaid's Money'.
Designed and made by Latitude Jewellers.
