The worn-out cone shells are Puka shells. These shells comprise mollusks. When these mollusks die, the shell knocks about in the ocean and a hole wears in at the center of these shells. When these cone shells lose their tip and the pointed edge is eroded, Puka shells come into existence. These shells are thereby used to make Puka jewelry. These shells are polished by the ocean. The natural hole is used to strung the shells together. The Hawaiian word for 'hole' is Puka.
What we're trying to say is that just because a piece is vintage, a seller may try to sell a damaged piece for a huge sum. This is when you have to make a judgment call. How bad does the piece look? If it has, say, a lot of stones missing, rethink your decision to buy it. Some sellers might try to sell a piece that has been badly repaired. For instance, stones and beads might have been glued back into the setting. This is one of the worst ways to deface vintage jewelry and speaks a lot about the knowledge of the seller.
Diamond studs are versatile and elegant. However, if your budget doesn't permit you to buy one, choose stud earrings in white sapphire or other semiprecious stones. It is less expensive, but looks just as gorgeous.
