Glowing with an iridescent beauty, mother-of-pearl has been showcased in jewelry designs for thousands of years. Completely natural, mother of pearl is the iridescent lining found on the inside of select shells such as oysters and abalone, and are made from the same organic material as history’s most precious pearls. In the 15th century, Queen Elizabeth I gave this luminous substance its more familiar name “mother-of-pearl,” referring to the fact that these shells are the mother from which pearls are created. Due to the Queen’s blessing, mother-of-pearl experienced great popularity and was set in gold and silver rings, necklaces and mother-of-pearl brooches. Their popularity never faded, and to this day mother of pearl is one of the world’s most beloved organic gems.
The Mother of Pearl Mosaic Necklace showcases this natural beauty in a mosaic tile design surrounded by the sparkle of The Ultimate Diamond Alternative™, DiamondAura®.
