Mother-of-pearl BELLE éTOILE

By Nancy DeRoo on 6/29/2019


Often overlooked, the shell lining of an oyster or mollusk is called mother-of-pearl.  It is the same luster and iridescence that the pearl it creates.  How can you ignore something so lovely?

Let me introduce the BELLE éTOILE line.  It has hand-painted, Italian enameling, as well as the luster of the beautiful mother-of-pearl.  The Montage Collection has black Italian enameling with rhodium-plating over 925 Sterling Silver, making it virtually allergy-free.

If whole pearl jewelry is not your thing, you might want to try mother-of-pearl.  It can show as more modern, even a bit edgey.    It also might change your mind about a whole pearl in jewelry. 

Take a look at some I have attached:
