Natural pearls are formed when an irritant gets inside a mollusk's shell and the animal responds with a nacre coating to shield itself. Shell pearls are similar to natural pearls. Shell pearls are man made but are created using the same material - the mother of pearl that is found in the lining of oyster shells. Since shell pearls are produced, there is a wider option in color selection. Shell pearls have a more affordable price point than their rarer counterpart. Shell pearls are also more durable than natural pearls. If you love the look of pearls but want a much more sustainable and economical option, shell pearls are a great fit. Our high quality shell pearls are great for the designer that loves the grace of Jackie Kennedy or the fun of Carrie Bradshaw.
