Mother of pearl received it majestic name from 15 century Europeans during the Reign of Queen Elizabeth. For centuries, it’s been cultivated in the sea and various saltwater farms across the world. It’s formed naturally within the hard, pearly internal layer of various marine shells such as oysters and mollusc. This shell is known for its iridescent play of colour and is a favorite in many jewellery designs.
