Shell Pearls Necklace

I’ve decided to share some Auckland Beads archives with jewellery samples that have been made over the years by passionate staff. Here is a gorgeous necklace made of shell pearl, sterling silver components and rose quartz beads.

“Man made Sea Shell Pearls are created by repeatedly dipping a round matrix bead into a glowing, brilliantly colored solution of binders and crushed mother of pearl. They are polished and dipped, again and again, until they reach the size desired. They are very heavy, often much heavier than real pearls.” (Wikipedia)

Did you know that Turquoise jewellery is 90% of the time Howlite that has been dyed.

Howlite, in its natural state, look like cauliflower, is porous so easy to dyed. This stone is very popular because of its ressemblance to turquoise and its cheaper price.

Howlite is believed to have healing properties and help to calm and bring mental stability. Howlite is also good to reinforce bones and teeth.
