Shell Necklace

Shell Necklace
It definitely is not a cat eye, which is an operculum or "door" that closes a turban shell when the animal withdraws inside.  Your shell doesn't appear to be a complete shell, but is probably a piece sawed off a shell.  The opinion offered above by Razgriz is probably right.  This does look like the spire (spiraled end), cut off a Conus marmoreus, commonly called "Marble Cone Shell".  Here is what that shell looks like complete:

Notice how the end view of the shell, in the center, looks like the shell on your necklace.
