Mabé pearls are salt water pearls akin to South Sea pearls.

Mabé pearls grow against the inside shell of a penguin oyster, rather than in the body of the oyster. They have a semi-spherical shape with a flatish back. They are sometimes also called "half pearls" and Mabe "blister pearls". They are sought after for their exquisitely colored and highly iridescent nacre.

It takes from 2 to 6 years of cultivation to produce a Mabé pearl. The longer the cultivation period the larger the resulting pearl.

While in the oyster a Mabé pearl is actually considered a blister pearl. After harvesting blister pearls are worked by cutting the pearl out of the shell with a circle-bit drill. The nucleus is then removed and replaced with a filler material. The back of the pearl is capped with a piece of mother-of-pearl to complete the Mabé pearl. Mabé pearls are just as durable and beautiful as any other pearl. They can be quite large.

**Colors may vary on different monitors. We do our best to get the color as close to the actual item as possible.
