The pearl is already a natural artwork and then for some, these particular products can appear an outrageous affront to elegance and preciousness of pearl, but the creativity of artists for this jewel make it even more refined and charming… Observing it you will notice that drawings reflect the light wonderfully, enhancing the colors and the depth of mother-of-pearl.
The Thaiti pearl, well-known for its unique sheen, has a thick layer of mother-of-pearl, and it is what that allows a carving of about 1 mm in depth.
These sculptures, with elegant tribal motifs, inspire to the traditional polynesian french tattoos, in particular of the marquis islands; they often represent the nature like the sea waves, or animals like turtles, rays and lizards.
The carvings are crafted by qualified skilled tattoo artists, who hand down this tradition for generations. Every design is unique.
In the past, the most of carvings was made on low-value pearls, with the purpose of hiding the imperfections and improving the quality, but the pearls used today are definitely precious and refined.
