18K Gold Rock Crystal Conch Pendant

The Right Turning Conch symbolizes the fame of the Buddha's teachings, which spread in all directions like the sounds of the conch trumpet. As one of the oldest ritual objects, it stood for femininity and as a musical offering. Our limited edition rock crystal pendant was hand carved using reverse intaglio, a  technique where the shell is carved into the flat back so, that when viewed through the top, the image appears three-dimensional. The pendant set in 18K recycled gold measures approximately 5/8" in diameter and hangs on a 16" or 18" 18K gold chain with a lobster claw closure.
