Saskia Diez | Bold Ear Cuff: Mother of Pearl
Mother Of Pearl, also known as nacre, an organic-inorganic composite material produced by some molluscs as an inner shell layer. It is resilient, strong and iridescent. The outer layer of cultured pearls and the inside layer of the shell of pearl oysters and freshwater pearl mussels are made of nacre. It is composed of hexagonal platelets of aragonite whose thickness is close to the wavelength of visible light, which causes its iridescent appearance. Their structure interfere constructively and destructively with different wavelengths of light depending on different angles of viewing.

About the Designer:
Munich jewelry designer Saskia Diez is the queen of understatement. She designs delicate and fine pieces of jewelry that are not loud or intrusive at all. She uses only processed silver and gold from Germany, gained from old metals. In addition she combines for example preciously cut pebbles from the Isar, the river that flows through the middle of Munich.
