A shell symbolizes listening; keeping silent; meditation. The human ear resembles a shell. Because of its origins in the marine world, it also represents our inner life and the connection between the conscious and the unconscious. Our version is one that opens to the left ("sinister" is Latin for left) and features a responsibly sourced diamond. Sinistral shells are very rare in nature.
Sterling silver with a 1.5 mm Canadamark diamond.
Earing length 1.25" including leaver back.
Sold as a single earring.
