Where does mother-of-pearl come from?

Mother-of-pearl with its satiny lustre is a natural product that comes from the innermost layer of shells from fresh or salt water molluscs. This decides whether the fundamental hue is pale or dark. The subtle iridescence of mother-of-pearl is what gives it a special charm.

What is mother-of-pearl made of?

Mother-of-pearl is composed of calcium carbonate in the form of aragonite and conchiolin from organic material. In the case of mother-of-pearl, the conchiolin ensures cohesion of the wafer-like aragonite crystals, which, layer by layer, go to form this fascinating and lustrous natural material.

How is mother-of-pearl processed?

Mother-of-pearl is a good material to work with: fine saw blades are used to saw suitably sized pieces of the raw material required for creating jewellery. Steel tools are used to form the mother-of-pearl into the correct style before setting it. The prepared pieces of mother-of-pearl are shimmed and positioned for grinding and subsequent polishing. Once they have been given their special iridescent sheen through polishing, the selected pieces of mother-of-pearl are set.

Where is mother-of-pearl used?

Opalescent, wafer-thin mother-of pearl is ideal for creating jewellery, allowing it to sparkle with life. No other jewellery material possesses anywhere near as similar characteristics. And that is exactly what makes mother-of-pearl so fascinating. Depending on what size pieces of mother-of-pearl are used, mother-of-pearl is unequalled in how it influences the character of jewellery designs and women’s watch faces.

How to take care of mother-of-pearl

You should care for natural mother-of-pearl as you would pearls: be careful where you keep it so that other pieces of jewellery do not cause scratches to the mother-of-pearl. Hairspray, perfume and other cosmetic products damage the iridescent surface. This is why it is best if you only put on mother-of-pearl jewellery, just like pearls, once you have finished putting on your make-up.
