Could still be a loop style fashion button

I would also be inclined to think it might be a designer button. Please let us know.. Could be one of those that had a loop closure, not necessitating any type of thread attachment. I can just imagine it on a glamorous color matched coat or cape...

I have no idea what your little gem is, but it is an exquisite little piece,what a find!

Too thick for button
by: Anonymous

It is big for a button...the piece is also pretty thick about 9mm (3/8 inch) or so. It would have been too heavy for a button. Thank you though

Sea glass button?

Although a little big for a button, it might be one. Does the back look like there was at one time a little loop protruding for the thread to go through?
