Mother of Pearl cabochons

Mother of Pearl cabochons give any piece of jewellery a classic look. They are a pearlescent white, although we do have a small amount of stock in a pale pink colour.

I'm finding a lot of jewellers buying these to actually repair older pieces of jewellery, rather than create new ones - perhaps they are coming back into vogue.

We currently sell these cabochons in oval and round - a few different sizes. Please bear in mind, these are shell cabochons - they are brittle! Take care when setting, or glue them in.

These cabochons are sold singly, but we do offer discounts for bulk purchases.

Frequently asked questions and delivery information

How do we grade stones?

There is no overall universal grading system for the majority of our products. As such, the grades we use are internal only. They simply refer to higher and lower qualities, but they may be entirely different grades to other websites. C grade pieces are of lower quality than B grade, which is lower than A grade.


How does our ordering and delivery process work?

You place an order via the website. When it’s been picked and packed, your order will be marked as completed and dropped off at our local post office. We have an account with the post office called a “Drop and Go” account, which allows the post office staff to process our parcels when they have free time, rather than me queuing up and delaying everyone else.

I get tracking information etc online when this has been completed. I typically do not send tracking information to customers unless they request it – but if you’ve requested tracked postage, it has been sent tracked! If you have any worries or concerns about your parcel being delayed please feel free to get in touch and I’ll send the tracking info over! We also get delivery confirmations for parcels over 25MM thick by default.


How do international orders work?

After Brexit, with the UK leaving the European Union, certain things have changed with regards to international orders. European Union customers will now likely be liable to pay the same amount of import VAT as any other international customers. You will be responsible for any customs and import fees.


I’d like to return my order for a refund.

No problem at all – just get in touch and we’ll arrange it. You can read our full returns policy here.


What payment methods do you accept?

I can accept Paypal, Stripe, cheque, and direct bank transfers. Paypal and Stripe will both allow you to pay with credit and debit cards.

    I wanted some mother of pearl cabochons to decorate a leather Dungeons & Dragons dice case that I was making for friends. Well, I actually wanted moonstone but it was a little out of my price range. I’ve never seen a real moonstone, so can’t comment on the difference.

    I got four 14mm x 10mm cabochons in the normal white mother of pearl. All identical, with a very attractive soft milky sheen. These cabochons were almost flat – not as domed as the usual cabochons I’ve had from AF&I. This was not a problem for my project.

    The mother of pearl stands out very well against the waxy dark purple leather I used. A lovely combination.

    Very pleased.
