Mother of Pearl Neck Cuff


The PEARLS collection, evoking a palette from the ocean and sky, plays with an anti-WWAKE scale. Large, sculptural pearls take the spotlight and are literally pierced with our opalescent signature details. This capsule collection is made with cultured shells and pearls that are grown in the last American pearl farm.  

Mother-of-Pearl sheets are pierced by ethically sourced Australian Opals and pale blue Sapphires, which support local communities in Malawi. The neck cuff is 18k recycled gold with a 14k gold bail, dusted with recycled pave diamonds.

Pearls benefit from being worn and absorbing the natural oils on your skin. While they benefit from moisture, they should not be submerged in water. When cleaning, gently wipe with a soft cloth before putting them away. They can also be scratched due to their soft surface and should therefore be stored separately from other jewelry.

Diamonds are durable by nature but still should be handled with care. Avoid harsh chemicals and extreme heat. If your stone needs cleaning, you can use a polishing cloth, dish soap, and a baby tooth brush to clean underneath the setting and bring it back to its original beauty. If you ever need a deep clean, feel free to email and we can help with next steps.

Our opals are all natural and each unique to their cut and color. We're proud of our stones and guarantee the best selection that is available. Please note that while we guarantee this quality, we, however, cannot promise exact replicas of the colors photographed due to the natural variations within the stone. Thank you in advance for understanding!

While we love the brilliance of our opals, it's important to know that this comes hand in hand with the fact that they are a "softer" stone. In general, we recommend being gentle with your opal rings, follow the tips above, and be mindful not to hit them against something hard by mistake. Damaged opals are not uncommon, so keep in mind that our customer service is here for you. We also offer polishing, resizing, and prong tightening of any WWAKE products.
