Frederic Sage White Mother of Pearl Mini Luna Earrings rose gold
Additional Information

Mother of Pearl Mother of pearl is similar to pearls in that it’s made of the same stuff. But in many ways, mother of pearl is its own ‘gemstone’. Perfect for unique jewelry, stylish craft and beautiful décor, mother of pearl has many uses. Mother of pearl is an organic gemstone and refers to the iridescent lining that’s found in the inner surface of a nacre-producing mollusc’s shell. Another term for mother of pearl is nacre, which is the substance that forms pearls.Mother of pearl is made of aragonite, a type of calcium carbonate, formed by the pearl oyster, as well as freshwater pearl mussels and abalone. Nacre is secreted by the mollusc as a defence mechanism against irritants and abrasions that find their way into the shell. Over time, the creature secretes layers of nacre which smoothen the surface of the shell and entombs any irritants that cling to the inner surface of the shell.

Product Care

How to Care for Mother of Pearl •Mother of pearl is a very durable substance because of how the nacre is formed. It lacks cleavage, meaning that it doesn’t easily chip or fracture. Although it has a low Mohs ranking, at only 2.5 to 4.5 on the scale, it’s highly durable and wearable.

•Use a lint-free cloth to wipe away sweat or body oils which can dull the luster of mother of pearl. You can dampen the cloth for a more effective clean. If you need a deeper clean, use a jewelry cleaner that’s recommended for pearl jewlery or a mild soap and warm water.

•Avoid harsh cleaners or abrasives that could damage the surface of the gemstone and cause scratches.

•Avoid using ultrasonic cleaners because mother of pearl is too soft to be used in these machines which would probably do more harm than help.
