Replikate for the Eye of Shiva Shell Earrings

I’ve been drawn to costume/non-fine jewelry lately, so Kate’s pre-marriage Eye of Shiva earrings started to appeal to me a couple of months ago. I searched Etsy for a pair which look similar to hers.

For comparison, here are Kate’s earrings:

And here are mine:

I ordered them from Thailand. They took about three weeks to reach me.

Some Eye of Shiva earrings display the shell’s outer surface on the back. The shop I purchased these from capped the back with sterling silver discs.

The silver discs give them some weight and increase the likelihood of them swinging to the side.

I am happy with them  The earrings cost $18 USD and I paid $4 for shipping from Thailand to the U.S. It did take almost a month to reach me, so I must warn you that the seller is not known for fast shipping. Other than that my earrings arrived in perfect condition and as shown in photos.
