The cowrie shell is, by far, the most popular shell in Senegal. The shells can be seen in women's hair, in anklets and jewelry and in decorations. In some parts of the world, the shells have been used as currency and symbolize everything from fertility to wealth, protection and strength of the ocean. Our cowrie choker is accented with glass beads to give it the perfect “pop” for any ensemble.
