Mother of Pearl in Sterling


Mother of pearl is one of the most reverred of all the shells used in jewelry and decoration. It has been used for centuries as adornment as it is painstakingly inlaid in boxes, instruments, furniture, doors, mosaics - you name it. Artisans have loved this durable, luminous nacre which is the inner lining of mussels and oysters since ancient Egypt, medieval Chinese dynasties and the indigenous Native Americans.

This fine sterling scroll is the perfect cradle for this mother of pearl tear. Dangling from sterling earwires, they are like a work of art! Please see below for a size reference.
