This lovely vintage necklace features six operculum shell links also known as Cat's Eye. The eyes were a popular item during the Victorian times to ward off evil. These shells are set in lacy silver wire. The closure is a fold over clasp possibly replaced but functions fine. The shells have some crazing and fine cracks but are secure and there is some crimping of the silver wire along the edge. There is a moderate amount of patina. Size is 7 1/4 inches in length by 3/4 inch in width.
