I think we all know now that Mother of Pearl is an extraordinary, naturally occuring element that is ideal for jewelry, but what exactly is it? Mother of pearl is the name for iridescent nacre, a blend of minerals that are secreted by oysters and deposited inside their shells, coating and protecting their bodies from parasites and foreign objects. It is literally called "mother of pearl" because it is infact the mother of future pearls. As a result, MOP creates organic cufflinks and organic jewelry. MOP is also used in many other decorative applications. It is frequently used to adorn different architectural surfaces and is used as an inlay for various musical instruments. We love featuring mother of pearl in cufflinks since every pair will have its own reflective properties, making each cufflink a true work of art. So take some time to shop and let us know how we can serve you.
