About The Gemstone

Mother of pearl is a nacre cut from the shell of the pinctada maxima pearl oyster—like all pearls, pinctada maxima pearls are formed when an irritant becomes trapped in a mollusk. The mollusk secretes a fluid, called nacre, which coats the irritant layer upon layer until a pearl is formed. Before the use of plastics one, of the main uses for mother of pearl was buttons: nowadays, this iridescent nacre is beloved for its use in fine jewelry in a variety of shades from inky silver to translucent white.
MOHs Hardness: 3.5
Origins: Australia south sea
Care: Keep mother of pearl jewelry away from chemicals: contact with cosmetics, oils, acids, etc., can discolor or ruin the texture of pearls. To clean your mother of pearl jewelry, use warm water with mild soap. Do not use an ultrasonic or steam cleaner.

The Story of Ruthie B.

An homage to Hannah's childhood and the nostalgia of her fishing home, this collection comprises gritty nautical-inspired pieces. The collection is named after Hannah's father's fishing vessel, the Ruthie B, which was named after Hannah's mother. Ruthie B. celebrates the mystery and natural peculiarity of the ocean that painted the artist’s childhood. In their weathered island home, Hannah and her six siblings learned how to entertain themselves amidst the chaos that comes with such a large family. The dingy fishing paraphernalia that littered their backyard was a playground of inspiration: raw snapshots of beauty against the clean backdrop of their hometown of Nantucket. These familiar moments inspired her to create beauty of her own. Shop the full Ruthie B. Collection
