Gold Cowrie Shell Hoops
The sweet little cowrie shell hoops will have you feeling like it's Summer all year round! Cowrie shells have traditionally symbolised femininity and fertility, and was often referred to as the ‘giver of life’. Women would wear them not only to help them conceive, but to also help them give birth safely. The shape of the cowrie is said to represent a woman’s pregnancy due to its round shape, and the middle opening of the shell representing the female vulva. Tarnish resistant & safe for sensitive skin.
