Mother of Pearl earrings

$9.95

Description

These earrings are made from Mother Of Pearl shell that has been ground, cut, shaped and polished to give the perfect shape of a full moon. The Mother of Pearl shells are sourced from the North of Fiji. The earrings are finished with sterling silver hoops. They are packaged in a hand-made masi pouch, made out of the inner bark of the paper Mulberry tree. Masi is a famous Fijian cloth that is beautiful and natural, and complements the MOP shells. A beautiful Fijian treasure, Mother of Pearl earrings coupled with a Masi pouch, ideal as a gift. 

Rako have carefully designed each piece so that the natural Fijian materials used have no customs restrictions. Each piece of Mother of Pearl shell has been carefully processed - this means it has been sanded, oiled and polished. 

The only materials that have customs restrictions are feathers, Clam Shell, Red Vaivai seeds and any other seeds. That's why none of the Rako jewellery range contains these items. These are truly special, hand-made pieces that are unique to Fiji and Rako's Rotuman roots.
