Mother of Pearl - Iconic gift choice for Mother’s Day (sofiacampins.com)
The perfect gift, natural Mother of Pearl Cube Bracelet with gold filled accents - 🤍🤍🤍 - perfect because of the close relationship, and the fact that both mother of pearl and pearl gemstones are made of nacre, but mother of pearl refers specifically to the nacre-coated inner-shell of the mollusk. Pearls, on the other hand, are made completely out of nacre. When an irritant gets trapped inside a mollusk, the mollusk, in order to protect itself, coats this irritant with layers upon layers of nacre until it develops into a pearl three to four years later.
Historically, some cultures placed great importance on mother of pearl, at some points more than pearls themselves. For example, in ancient Egypt, mother of pearl was used to embellish silver pieces. Mother of pearl was also immensely popular in China during the Shang and Ming Dynasties. Finally, in the Americas, Native American tribes regularly traded mother of pearl and used it to create beads and jewelry.
According to popular belief, one reason why it's called mother of pearl is that the nacre-lined shells are the belly in which pearls are produced.
What better way to show a mother that you appreciate all that she did and does for you by moulding you into the person you are today, moulding you into a gemstone.
