Rectangles of lustrous mother-of-pearl shell shine from classic 17" necklace that encircles the collarbones like a gorgeous smile. These shell beads are spaced by Czech firepolish glass rondelles and vermeil daisies for warm, rich style. Mother of pearl comes from the nacre of mollusks, such as mussels or oysters. Commerical sources are typically pearl oyster and freshwater pearl mussels, though mother-of-pearl buttons came from a variety of snail shell. Shell has long been valued for its beautiful, decorative properties and the mother-of-pearl trade is regulated internationally through conventions signed by most countries to protect wild marine species and environments such that mother-of-pearl may be sustainably harvested. Clasp is an easy to fasten vermeil S-clasp.

Cost: $39.00 USD

Length: necklace - 17"

Materials:

  • mother-of-pearl rectangles
  • Czech glass rondelles
  • vermeil daisy spacers
  • vermeil S-clasp
  • Soft Flex nylon coated stainless steel beading cord

Care & cleaning: Beading cord may be frayed or severed through hard jerks or prolonged exposure to rough or sharp edges; store necklace flat when not in use to prevent stretching or fraying cord. Clean with damp soapy water and avoid chemical or abrasive cleaners. Use a soft jewelry polishing cloth to clean tarnish appearing on metal.

Although the materials and cord in this necklace can withstand tugs and pulls, hard impacts or rough handling may damage the softer shell. As with all beaded jewelry: do not let young toddlers chew on it.

This 17" necklace pairs best with thin materials or lower necklines so it can lay flat.
