Vintage Hawaiian Puke Shell Necklace 16 1/2" long.

Vintage 1970s Hawaiian puka shell necklace. These shells look to me like they may have been tumbled to soften the edges and produce a high shine. The holes vary in size, but I think that man helped these along a bit. They are the real deal, just have a final polish by man instead of the sea.

They are 5.6 mm in diameter. Necklace is 16 1/2" long. Shells are well matched. Weight: 23.7 grams.
