Scallop Pearl Jewellery - Handmade, Unique, Elegant, Natural
ABOUT SCALLOP PEARLS
Developed naturally over several years, only 1-5% of scallops produce pearls. These pearls have been found casually by fisherman for years; but if you consider their natural rarity and the extremely fast shucking process, the opportunity to find a jewellery worthy pearl becomes quite special.
It is our pleasure to display these pearls, with their silvery glittering sheen, in complimentary settings where their beauty can be enjoyed for many years to come.
