“Mother of Pearl” (MOP) is nacre - an iridescent material derived from the inner layer of some mollusk shells. It is the same material pearls are made with. These moons have been carved from Mother of Pearl and they have a lovely sheen to them. They hang beneath amethyst gems, which are flanked by high-quality Peruvian blue opal. These blue opals are semi-translucent, a highly desirable quality in this type of stone. The color is exquisite!
These earrings are oxidized (given a patina) sterling silver, polished to a shine. They are 2” even in length, including the hand forged ear wires.
