• White and blue shell pearl and quartzite necklace


    This simple and elegant white shell pearl and quartzite necklace has been made using the traditional knotting technique on durable s-lon thread.  One of the benefits of using the knotting technique is that if the necklace breaks one day you will only loose one of the pearls or quartzite.  The necklace is finished with a silver plated rope effect toggle clasp.

    Shell pearl is made up of the shell of the oyster or mollusc that you will find a cultured pearl within, which is reformed with a small amount of resin.  This gives the benefit of a beautiful lustre and hardiness of not becoming damaged by perfume, hairspray and other such products.

    A little bit of history, myth and legend

    Pearls are one of the most iconic gems throughout the ages and have captured the hearts of millions.  The name ‘pearl’ is originally derived from the latin ‘perna’ meaning ‘leg’.  They were originally thought to be the excusive property of the rich and famous but with today’s pearl farming techniques real pearls can be affordable to all.  They are thought to be calming and centreing to the wearer and are thought to be associated with the third eye chakra.  They have been also been associated with the treatment of digestive disorders.
