Naturally formed as a protective layer inside shells, mother-of-pearl is believed to have a calming and balancing effect on emotions. It is treasured as a symbol of protection and purity.

At De Beers, we are proud to use only natural, untreated mother-of-pearl in our jewellery. This beautiful material is delicate and requires care to retain its characteristic colour and finish.

To prevent damage or scratching, we recommend storing your Enchanted Lotus piece in a fabric-lined box or soft cloth, avoiding contact with hard surfaces or other jewellery.

Keep pieces away from perfumes, lotion, hairspray and household chemicals as these could also cause damage, along with prolonged exposure to extreme heat, sunlight and chlorine. We advise taking jewellery off before showering or swimming.

Clean your Enchanted Lotus jewellery with a dry soft cloth for the best results – use of a diamond polishing cloth could scratch the surface of the mother-of-pearl.
