Say hello to the oldest Jewelry in East Asia - crafted from a 37,000 year old shell.

The beautiful piece was recently discovered in East Timor and is thought to have been worn as a necklace or a bracelet. 

This isnt even the oldest example of shell Jewelry to have been discovered-one found in Morocco is over 80,000 years old!!
