Gemstone Information

Shells are the protective outer coverings from various animals. Most of the shell used in jewelry comes from helmet conchs, mollusks, black-lipped oysters, and abalone. The earliest known shell jewelry dates to 82,000 years ago from a site in Morocco. It is thought that shell’s first use as an ornamental material was a byproduct of the search for food. Shell is best known for its use in mother-of-pearl buttons and knife handles. Cameo carvers take advantage of the different colored layers of shell to create images of beautiful women and classical scenes.

Mother of pearl jewelry (or nacre jewelry) is made of the colorful, iridescent outer-coating and shell of true, natural pearls. The nacre that protects these oysters, in fact, creates the pearl itself – hence the name, mother of pearl. Just as resilient and breath-taking as pearls themselves, mother of pearl jewelry offers an affordable alternative to pearl jewelry itself.

Mother of pearl has been prized for its beauty and used in jewerly for thousands of years, since the time of the Ancient Egyptians and Sumerians.
