We are constantly being asked for affordable pearls. As you know high quality pearls can be very expensive so we wanted to look for the next best thing. We found these 10mm shell pearls do just the job.
Shell Pearls are made from the inner lining of oyster shells, which is also known as Mother of Pearl, Paua or nacre (material produced by some molluscs as an inner shell layer; it is also the material of which pearls are composed). The organic material is ground to a fine powder, shaped, dyed and coated with natural pearl nacre and then a protective coating to give it lustre. Shell pearls vary in quality but are quite stunning and much less expensive than saltwater pearls. Strict quality control ensures shell pearls will keep their color and shine and will not be affected by sweat and perfume and are extremely durable.
