Shell Pearls are made from the inner lining of oyster shells, also known as Mother of Pearl. The substance is ground to a fine powder, shaped, dyed, and coated with natural pearl nacre and then a protective coating to give it luster.

Authentic pearls are formed by molluscs when an irritant gets into the creature. It reacts by coating the irritant with layers of nacre, which eventually builds up and forms into a pearl.

Shell pearls, on the other hand, are created by humans using the inner lining of oyster shells, the substance known as Mother of Pearl.

This makes shell pearls quite interesting because although they’re made by humans, they are made of the same materials as real pearls.
