I personally wouldn't have a problem with it if they were naturally lost. The problem with these items if you purchase them is that you can be fairly guaranteed they weren't simply 'lost.' There wouldn't be enough to supply demand if only those that were lost were sold. Now, if you walked along a beach and collected seashells and then made them into your own jewelry, that would be different - however, then, you can get into an argument about too many people removing things from their natural environment, which is why some places, like some national parks and such, won't allow you to remove things because if everyone says 'just one little thing won't matter,' it becomes a whole lot of little things, which becomes a big problem.
