Gemstone Information

Mother-of-pearl is the nacreous iridescent inside layer of certain mollusks. This beautiful substance is often used for jewelry, carving and ornamentation. As mother-of-pearl producing mollusks cannot regulate their body temperature, they are susceptible to changes in external conditions. Mother-of-pearl can naturally appear in a wide variety of colors, however, it is frequently dyed to a multitude of attractive shades.

Affordable Mother of Pearl Necklaces

Step out in style in a new mother of pearl necklace from JTV! Mother of pearl has long been beloved for its smooth elegance and unique luster. In fact, mother of pearl has been used for decorative purposes since ancient times. The Egyptians as well as the Sumerians were adept at decorating with mother of pearl, and it has been used ever since. Part of the reason for this is the abundance of mother of pearl, as opposed to the fully-formed pearls found in jewelry pieces like pearl necklaces. Both are made from the same substance, nacre, but develop under differing circumstances. All mollusks that can produce pearls also produce mother of pearl as a protective coating on the inside of their shells. It is only with the addition of an irritant is a pearl formed. The mollusk will use the same nacre it uses to create its shell to cover and surround the irritant.

The abundance of gorgeous mother of pearl has led to a wide array of different styles of jewelry at very reasonable prices. You'll find pendants, teardrop necklaces, filigree necklaces and more when you explore affordable mother of pearl necklaces at JTV.
