Although often viewed as the little sister of the traditional pearl, mother of pearl jewellery is also widely coveted thanks to its one-of-a-kind appearance. A gemstone that works especially well at garden parties, weddings and other outdoor events, accessorise your outfit with a pair of mother of pearl earrings or ring for just a hint of refined glamour!

WHAT IS MOTHER OF PEARL?

While pearls and mother of pearl are both formed from the same substance - nacre - the difference between the two stones arises from their placement as they are formed. Mother of pearl forms along the  inner linings of molluscs, while pearls are formed deep inside the mollusc. The iridescent mother of pearl layer that forms within the shell can be skilfully sculpted into cabochons - gemstones that are shaped and polished - making for interesting and attractive jewellery creations.
