This isn't your grandmother's pearr...er...—scratch that, this isn't your mother's mother. No. I meant, this isn't your mother's pearls. That is, it's mother of pearl, not pearl of your mother, your mother's mother, or any other mother. But if you'd like it to be, just visit Japan's Kunimoto and ask for the "Jewel-3D Raden" collection.
