Mother of pearl is quite an exquisite material, it has a gorgeous iridescent look that goes from crisp white to a golden color. Each piece is a representation of the hard work and craftsmanship it takes to create these beauties. Mother of pearl is fragile and these should be treated with that level of respect. The kind of piece you wear on occasions and do not wear to bed. The detail on the African Elephant hangers are second to none, pictures do not do them justice. They range in size from 10g to 0g and we will do our best to make sure the pair is as close to identical as possible given the handcrafted natural material.
