Express Your Finesse with Mother-of-Pearl Jewelry

Cover Photo Courtesy of Chopard

One of nature’s most beautiful gifts to us is the mother-of-pearl. Also called nacre, this gorgeous substance, found in a shell, is usually used for the dial of a watch and it’s marking its territory in the world of jewelry – resulting in an impressive selection of pieces that doesn’t lack femininity in any possible way.

Just like a mother-of-pearl dial in a timepiece, a jewelry piece ornamented with this substance is a true emblem of finesse and elegance, let alone the fact that its white shiny color goes with literally everything you wear and adds the perfect amount of shine to your look.

The concept of using mother-of-pearl has gained a strong place in the jewelry industry thanks to many houses such as Van Cleef & Arpels, Boucheron, Dior, Chopard and Bvlgari – to name a few. Every woman fell under its charm and the elegance that it exudes, especially when mounted on a stunning gold frame created by pioneers in the jewelry world. It’s all about creativity when it comes to jewelry, and coupled with the magical feel of mother-of-pearl, the jewelry pieces we chose for you will do wonders to your outfit!
