what is a mabe pearl

Mabe pearls are a type of cultured pearl grown inside the shells of oysters. They are created when a small, hemispherical nucleus is inserted into the oyster, which then coats it with layers of nacre. Unlike traditional pearls, mabe pearls are flat on one side and rounded on the other, making them ideal for use in jewelry designs. These pearls come in a range of colors, sizes, and shapes, making them a versatile addition to any collection.
