Fabulous Genuine Tortoise Pendant w/ Cats Eye Shell

We have offered here a fabulous Genuine Tortoise Pendant with an Operculum, or foot closure of a Turban Shell. The Pendant is round, and is flat on the back side, while slightly rounded on the top. The center is mounted in the center with an Operculum or Cats Eye Shell from the South Pacific. The Cats Eye Shell was used in Europe and the Middle East to ward off the evil eye. The Pendant is almost 1 1/2" across, and comes with an 18" 12k gold fill chain, and is in very good condition. It probably dates to the late Victorian period, and still makes a marvelous piece of unique jewelry today.
