Mother Of Pearl Shoes
Freya Rose’s historical knowledge and long-term passion for fine jewellery led to a Mother of Pearl heel becoming the signature of Freya Rose’s exquisite designs.
A rare and beautiful natural resource used for generations, its lustrous quality has been a desirable element in jewellery making for thousands of years.
Mother Of Pearl is the iridescent nacreous inner shell coating of pearl-producing molluscs, it can be found in both freshwater and saltwater all over the world. Mother of Pearl can naturally form in a variety of colours.
Our opulent Mother Of Pearl shoes are all handcrafted by specialist jewellers, each piece of Nacre is expertly hand cut and applied to the heel using resin, each pair of Freya Rose shoes featuring a Mother Of Pearl heel take around 20 hours of craftsmanship to create.
The Freya Rose ‘Lisa‘ heels are made by placing the hand cut Mother Of Pearl onto the heel using a Parquetry technique, as well as creating a beautiful pattern this technique adds to the strength of the Mother Of Pearl.
Mother Of Pearl is known to be exceptionally durable if cared for, it is advisable to gently clean Mother Of Pearl gemstones with a soft cloth after being worn. Simply use warm water and a mild soap or detergent. Wipe the Mother Of Pearl down using a soft cloth and be sure to rinse them well to remove any soapy residue. Avoid using any harsh chemical or cleaners, such as bleach, ammonia or acid. Prolonged exposure to heat, direct sunlight or extreme temperature fluctuations should be avoided,
Mother Of Pearl can be easily scratched by other harder gems and jewellery, so it should be stored separately from other gemstones. We advise storing your Freya Rose shoes featuring a Mother Of Pearl heel safely away in their box between wears in order to avoid scratching.
