ABALONE SHELL: Prized across all continents, abalone shell shimmers in a palette of soothing sea shades, including blue, green, black and even red and pink. No two pieces of abalone shell are exactly alike, giving each piece of jewelry its own unique beauty that can't be duplicated. Abalone shell is mostly used or seen in sterling silver jewelry pieces, for instance, such as rings, earrings, necklaces and bracelets.
Abalone shells come in an endless variety of unique patterns and colors. Color is emotional and you want to wear jewelry that makes you feel good, as well as look great! Abalone accessorizes well with a myriad of colors; it can be worn casual or with formal attire.
The shell is built up in concentric circles as the abalone matures, and the colors produced can depend on what the mollusk eats, and the temperature of the water, and the strength of the water current around it. No two shells display the same patterning or colors. Because the shell is build up in rings which are bound together by a clinging glue-like substance, abalone shell is very strong.
The iridescent inner lining is nacre which is also what pearls are made of. The lining is a colorful whorls and swirls of colors varying from reds, pinks and purples to shades of blue and green. This iridescence and colors that shift in the light is what makes it so valuable for jewelry and decoration.
The shells of abalones have a low open spiral structure, and are characterized by several open respiratory pores in a row near the shell's outer edge. The thick inner layer of the shell is composed of nacre (mother-of-pearl), which in many species is highly iridescent, giving rise to a range of strong changeable colors, which make the shells attractive to humans as decorative objects, jewelry, and as a source of colorful mother-of-pearl.
Abalone Jewelry Care and Handling
Abalone shell is on the softer side according to Mohs scale with a hardness ranging from 2.5 to 4.5, and should be protected from scratches and hard blows.
