Shimmering, blissful black lip mother of pearl necklace. Elegantly crafted, a gift of beauty, the perfect must have accessory for any classic suit, or even to wear with that little black dress.
Black lip mother of pearl is taken from marine cultured black lipped oysters. They are especially cultured to produce natural black pearls. Only one pearl is found in every 10,000 shells as these are so rare. However, the natural nacre that builds up in layers inside the shell to prevent attacks from parasites, is valuable enough for the fish farmers. So it is carved into beautiful items of jewellery, buttons for clothing and also used for decorative purposes in interior design.
This necklace is one of my most popular pieces. It is not only gorgeous but lightweight to wear.
Lovingly crafted this necklace measurse 18" (46cm) long, and I have added tiny silver plated spacer beads between. The clasp and extension chain are "nickel free" to comply with EU directives.
