Spiny oyster shell has a wonderful, vibrant orange color that looks fantastic on its own or paired with gemstones such as turquoise, coral, onyx, and lapis lazuli. Made from fossilized oyster shells that have been expertly cut, ground, and polished, spiny oyster shell is a fascinating material with a strong connection to the Earth and nature. Our spiny oyster shell jewelry collection features only the most exquisite and authentic jewelry, so any piece you’ll find is of the highest quality.

Shells have been a primary material used in Native American jewelry for centuries. Across all tribes, shells were considered extremely important. Since the ocean was thought of as the lifeblood of the earth in American Indian legends, shells are seen as an extension of the life-energy and spirit of the world.
Every jewelry collection deserves at least one spiny oyster shell jewelry piece, so choose one of ours that speaks to you.
