The only stone created by a living creature, pearls are formed when a small object such as sand is embedded in the tissue of an oyster or mollusc.
Thought to symbolise purity, innocence & ever-lasting love, pearls have been used in jewellery for centuries.
Wild pearls are extremely rare and expensive, but their enduring popularity has led to the development of freshwater or cultured pearls.
Freshwater pearls are manufactured by a technician to stimulate the growth that occurs naturally.
Mother of Pearl
Found within our watches, cufflinks and charms, the luminescent beauty of Mother of Pearl adds a decorative detail to each piece to dazzling effect.
Formed from a blend of minerals that are produced by oysters and other molluscs, its multi-coloured hues glimmer from white to pink to green giving it a distinct and instantly recognisable finish.
Mother of Pearl is the more common name for the iridescent coating that lines the inner shell.
From the more familiar radiant whites to the rarer black beauties, the world is your oyster when it comes to the colour of these freshwater wonders.
Found in just about every hue along the shimmering spectrum, the colour is entirely dependent on the species of the mollusc and the colour of its shell.
