They once had a utility value (tools, fishing lures, hooks, graters, scrapers, spoons, spatulas…) but also a decorative and ornamental value as costumes and ceremonial objects. Thus the old ornaments were adorned with large pearls polished with intense glare, which added to the majesty of the person who was wearing. During their history, mother-of-pearls have always been interested humans not for the pearls they might contain, but for the exceptional beauty of their shells.
