Ring, Mother of Pearl, Single Stone, Vintage, 532
Either as strung beads or whole shells, Mother of Pearl has been prized and traded by Native Americans for centuries - it is believed to bring intuition and motherly protection to the wearer.
Contemporary Southwest artisans combine this lustrous stone with sterling silver to create an understated take on old classics. This vintage ring features a single MOP stone set in sterling silver. Style this with other Mother of Pearl pieces, your Navajo silver, and even your grandmother’s pearls for a very classic and fresh take on this Native American genre.
