Cowrie - Groatie Buckie Pendant

Cowrie - Groatie Buckie Pendant

The ultimate Cowrie – Groatie Buckie Pendant!  A real shell found on an Orkney beach set in sterling and fine silver. The silver represent bubbles of seafoam. The back shows the shell through a heart cut out of the solid backing. As this is a real shell they will all vary ever so slightly in size, texture and shade. Approximate size excluding the bail is 17 mm.

Hallmarked in Edinburgh and comes on a 17 inch chain. Please contact directly if different length is required.

In Orkney, Cowries are called Grotie Buckies and are said to bring luck to the bearer. It’s a great sport trying to spot these tiny shells on the shoreline and sometimes it can get quite competitive to see who can collect the most.

There are two spieces of Cowries found in Orkney. Northern Cowrie, which has no markings and the slightly larger European Cowrie which has 3 spots on their backs.

Comes in a gift box ready to be presented to that special person!

All online orders also come in a paper gift bag with a polishing cloth, jewellery care instructions and a small organza bag of seashells collected from my local beach.
