Solomon Islands shell necklace 1800s

Awesome shell disc necklace on native string from Malaita in the Solomon Isles. This necklace dates to the 1800s and an amazing amount of time and effort would have gone into its production. We believe these necklaces were a form of currency as well as an item of prestige. purchased from a Tasmanian coin collector in the early 1990s.
