Huge Natural Hawaiian Puka Shell Necklace

Fantastic vintage Hawaiian puka shell necklace. I restrung this piece as it was on jute twine that was tied to the toggle clasp. It did not feel string. It was truly a 1970s hippie necklace. It is now on strong beading cable.

The shells are outstanding and huge measure diameters of 13.9 mm to 18.5 mm in diameter. They are 100% natural with a high shine that was made by the Pacific Ocean and the sand. They are bleached white by the sun and every hole in every bead is natural. I got to inspect them all as I restrung this.

It is 18" long and weighs a whopping 192.2 grams. A great find indeed!
