These loves Pink Charms are made with Queen Conch shells. They are so delightful to look at matching with cultured pearls.
Pink Queen Conchs are very large herbivores which graze on algae. These mollusks grow to full size in about 3 to 5 years, growing to a maximum of 12 to 14 inches. They have a long lifespan estimated to live about 40 years. You can find them in warm, shallow water throughout the Caribbean Sea and Gulf of Mexico in sand, sea grass, and coral reef habitats. They are prized for both their edible meat and attractive shell.
