You know her. She could be in her latest pretty Melissa sandals shopping with you; stylish sheath dress at work; or in her pyjamas preparing breakfast for you.
Yup, that’s her. Mom.
She could be a young mom struggling to potty-train her toddler; a mid-way there mom who’s always rushing between enrichment classes; or a young-at-heart mom trying to fill the empty nest with meaningful social activities.
We all know these women in our lives. This Mother’s Day, let these Mother of Pearl jewellery tell them what you think of them, and show your appreciation.
Why Mother of Pearl? Because they are the very embodiment of what mothers stand for. Imagine it nurturing a growing pearl within its belly in the big big ocean.
The fact that the Mother of Pearl is resilient enough to nurture pearls lend it the very strength that is prized by people of all ages.
So what is Mother of Pearl? Mother of Pearl is actually the inside layer of shell found from oysters, abalones and other molluscs. It is formed when these shell animals secrete a blend of minerals called aragonite, which contains calcium carbonate and conchiolin.
This results in a beautiful, shimmering, iridescent shell that in olden times, were prized more than the pearls that we love today. In fact, Japanese fishermen used to discard the pearls found inside the shells. #seriously
Try staring at some Mother of Pearls. You’ll find yourself drawn into the multiple layers that seemingly never end. Isn’t that just like how a mom is? There’s always more to her than meets the eye.
Here are some simple, non-fussy mother of pearl that brings out the iridescent beauty of the material. The faceted ones look like gems tones, really.
For some of the designs, we sliced the mother of pearl into thin wafers to make it lightweight and play with its iridescence.
For the unconventional mom, there are these dark gray mother of pearl earrings and necklaces that they will love.
