Cat's Eye Shell

Gift wrap available

Size: 5/8"
During the Victorian era, cat's eye shells were made into jewelry which was worn to ward off the evil eye. Because the shells have a natural cabochon shape, they were easily set into silver or gold rings or brooches. I have also seen a necklace pendant made of two cat's eye shells placed back-to-back within a silver bezel and a bracelet made of six of them set as cabochons between fancy silver links. Such jewelry was especially popular among sea-trading people like the British. It is likely that most of the cat's eye jewelry of this era was made by or for sailors and given as gifts to female relatives and lovers. Victorian cat's eye jewelry is highly collectible and priced accordingly.
