Product Details


Purple Top Ringtop Cowrie shells are cream colored with an orange to marbled ring, much like the Ringtop cowrie but with a beautiful purple top. Purple Top Ringtop Cowrie shells Work great for ends of bandoliers, necklaces, braid ties, dresses, etc. Drilled.

The Ring Top Cowrie and Purple Ring Top Cowrie are modern imports from Southeast Asia which has become very popular in the 20th Century through the present. It is characterized by an orangish line which "rings" the top of the shell. Thus the name "Ring Top". While popular for many of the same Native American craft uses as the Money Cowrie, they would not be the typical choice for use on dresses where the money cowrie were used in place of elk teeth.
