Shimmering, blissful black lip mother of pearl earrings. 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 this 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.
These earrings together with the necklace are one of my most popular pieces. They are not only gorgeous but lightweight to wear.
I have lovingly crafted these earrings, adding them to silver plated "nickel free" earring posts and scrolls to comply with EU directives.
