18K Gold, White Diamond
THE STORY BEHIND
An ancestral talisman
ALMASIKA’s debut collection revisits a natural treasure, rich with symbolism: the cowrie shell.
Queen of all shells, cowries have long been a symbol of spirituality, prosperity and fertility. Since ancient times, cowrie shells have been used as ornaments, they were even used as currency through to the late 19th Century and they are still used today in the Art of Divination. They have become synonymous with wealth and fortune, and continue to be worn in as a talisman to bring good fortune.
