24kt Gold Dipped Opihi Necklace
Often called the “fish of death”— the Hawaiian Opihi is a shell with one of the longest histories of being collected. Ancient Hawaiians were known to harvest this shell for a delicacy to eat, fertilizer, using it later for tools and jewelry. This limpet is known to adhere to rocks along the most turbulent coastal edges, making it oftentimes dangerous for Opihi collectors to find live Opihi to eat. The Opihi we use in our jewelry is sourced from shells that have washed ashore— we never take live shells for our jewelry. Dipped in 24kt Gold with 16" 14kt Gold fill Chain.
