Maharlika Hoops

$88.00Price

 

18k gold filled hoops made with mother of pearl, rare conus shell and biwa pearls. 

 

Because each type of pearl forms in a specific type of oyster or mussel in a certain location, there are several different varieties, and each has its own appearance and characteristics. Biwa pearls are unusually shaped cultured pearls that come from the freshwater mussels found in Lake Biwa, Japan.

 

Cone snails are among the most venomous creatures on earth. Among the most toxic are the textile, geographic, and tulip snails and there is a higher risk of death if the geographic and textile snails are involved. All capture their prey by means of harpoon-like hollow teeth (radula) that are rapidly jabbed into their prey to inject the toxic venom! Made from naturally discarded shells. 

 

Nacre, also known as mother of pearl, is an organic–inorganic composite material produced by some molluscs as an inner shell layer; it is also the material of which pearls are composed. It is strong, resilient, and iridescent.
