Back in 1950 we were living in Hawaii and my dad gave my mother this cat eye ring and necklace. For some reason I have always been fascinated with this piece of her jewelry only. One day she asked me if there was anything she had that I would like some day. I said the cat eye ring and necklace. That day came around about two years ago when she handed me a box with the cat eye set, but There was one stipualtion that came with it, my wife should wear the set.

    These are also called operculum. The lid to some shells/gastropods, popular also in the Victorian period.

    Very unusual and attractive items! Especially liked to learn how your Mother remembered that you loved these.

    Thank you miKKoChristmas11, Over the years when she wore the ring and necklace, I would comment on how much I like that set.
