Pearl & Mother of Pearl Studs


    An iridescent oval of mother of pearl with a large round pearl sitting at the top.


    A pearl is formed when an irritant works its way into a particular type of oyster, mussel or clam shell. As a defence mechanism the mollusc then produces an iridescent substance called nacre, which coats the irritant. Layer upon layer of this coating is deposited until a lustrous pearl is formed. Nacre also coats the inner layer of the shell, which is called mother of pearl.


    Pearl, mother of pearl & Sterling silver.


    Roughly 40mm X 29mm X 9mm
