The newest addition to our Maya Collection is the perfect piece for your summer wardrobe: Mother of Pearl. At LAGOS, mother of pearl is one of our favorites, it is characterized by its pretty white coloration and unmistakable iridescent sheen. Evocative of the beach, this material is unique because it is found on the inside of sea shells. Mother of pearl often has a mutli-colored luster that adds a faint glow when it catches the light. Clearly the perfect accessory for your next beach trip.
Similar to a lovely day by the ocean, mother of pearl is believed to have stress-relieving properties. It is said to bring calmness and stimulate creativity in the wearer.
This season, we have explored several different styles in mother of pearl. A statement ring surrounded by a halo of sterling silver Caviar beads adds shimmer to any look. Dramatic drop earrings add a touch of summer chic and are easy to style with a breezy dress. Maya necklaces are made to be layered. Paired over a simple tank top for a causal summer lunch can be just the right look. Mother of pearl also looks great with other gemstone colors like turquoise and lapis. We recommend mixing and matching different pieces in a variety of layers for a look that is truly your own! Your LAGOS your way!
