What are Shell Pearls? The shell Pearl is made from Mother of Pearl, the hard inner layer of the shell of an oyster.
The process of making a shell pearl involves several different stages.
The raw material for the base of the pearl is the sea shell, which is then cut, rounded, shaped, drilled and strung.
The pearls thus formed are later framed and dyed in various shades. After the pearls are baked and polished, they receive their final stringing.
In order to produce a good quality Pearl, a key ingredient is what is called a 'mother of pearl bead'. This element adds weight, value and durability to the pearl. In fact, the materials used in order to make shell Pearls are the same materials from which cultured Pearls are made.
