Sand dollars are actually the skeletons of a particular type of sea urchin.
These flat, bottom-hugging creatures are closely related to sea cucumbers and starfish, but their unusual appearance once they wash up on shore has fascinated people for centuries.
These sterling silver studs are approx. 10mm in diameter. Each earring has a silver post to which a butterfly type earring back is inserted and secures the earrings to the earlobes.
