What is mother of pearl
Mother of pearl is a glowing, pearlescent material that’s often used to make jewelry and ornaments.
Ancient cultures attributed different meanings and spiritual purposes to the materials from their natural world, and according to the tenets of Feng Shui, mother of pearl symbolizes good luck and prosperity. Wearing jewelry made with mother of pearl will attract wealth to the person wearing it.
These earrings are made of real sterling silver 92.5. This means it is 92.5% fine silver with no more than 7.5% of copper or other metals. This formula is internationally accepted and it gives sterling silver the hardness and the tolerance to work with. Anything higher than 92.5, would be too soft and tarnish too quickly. When you buy sterling silver from us, we can guarantee it is just that!
If you see the words silver plated, that means it only has a coating of sterling silver over another alloy. This will fade over time and is not able to be polished. Our sterling silver products are not plated but sterling silver all the way through– nothing but the good stuff for you!!
