Shell Pearls, also known as mother of pearl beads, are made by shaping a piece of oyster shell. This is then coated, dyed and polished to produce a beautiful and very high quality man made shell pearl. This manual production of the shell pearl enables the manufacturer to determine the shape, size, and colour of the pearl, thus making the final result seem perfect.
The modern technology of pearl production can also help its durability. The shell pearl will always keep its shine and colour, and is not so affected by sweat, perfume or detergents.
In fact, the materials used in order to make shell pearls are the same materials from which cultured pearls are made. Shell pearls are expensive as a result of their excellent quality, but compared to cultured pearls, shell pearls are still much easier and cheaper to buy.
