Topics: Shell, Mother-of-Pearl

Q.
I have a mother of pearl disc set in a sterling rim. The disc has become warped. How can I flatten it out without cracking the mother of pearl?
- Marie
A.
Mother-of-pearl shell is fairly resilient and durable, but it cannot be bent into a different shape without breaking. Consider removing, replacing or reshaping the sterling silver rim so it fits the mother-of-pearl.
