Vintage turquoise blue set comes with two pairs of earrings. Good to have in case you ever lose one, you have a perfect replacement.
This set was made in Japan and is marked as such on both the back of the clasp as well as on all earring backs. Composed of blue tridacna shell which is found near coral reefs on the bottom of the sea. The elongated pieces and the earrings are peppered with tiny holes. This is a bit different in appearance from most tridacna shell jewelry.
In between each elongated shell is a smooth polished tridacna bead and two silver tone beads. These look like turquoise stone.
Necklace is 19” in length and drapes nicely. Earrings measure 3/4” in both directions. Clasp on necklace is also 3/4". Condition is very good vintage. Only the earrings show their age on their backs.
Very wearable, very unusual and classic. I recommend wearing the clasp of the necklace on the back of the neck and not on front, as it doesn’t lie flat when hanging down on the front.
