The Cat’s eye shells which these gorgeous earrings are stylised on are fascinating as they actually are the protective lids or “doors” of the common sea snail. When these snails withdraw into their shells, it is this very cat’s eye that encloses them. That’s why cat’s eyes are great symbols of safety, protection, new life and new season.
