Why Mother of Pearl?

Simply put, there is no comparison between the ordinary hard plastic buttons that are common to nearly every men's dress shirt you see and the level of quality achieved by authentic Mother of Pearl.

Also known as "nacre", natural Mother of Pearl is harvested from the shells of oysters and is a durable, brilliantly iridescent material. The thickest parts of the shell are used to make the thickest and best Mother of Pearl buttons. Like any number of fine quality goods, the material cost and craftsmanship of such buttons makes for a price premium over dull, plastic, mass-produced buttons used on the commonplace shirt. Let us help your shirt go from "ordinary" to "extraordinary"!

There is a saying that it is "the clothes that make the man". Here at Prestige Buttons, we believe it is the buttons that will make the shirt. In that regard, there is no higher make than truly thick Mother of Pearl buttons.

About Prestige Buttons

Prestige Buttons was founded by Sean Paul Hopkins and Kilton Hopkins in 2009. One day the two brothers were looking at a great quality dress shirt when they noticed that it was missing a key element - natural Mother of Pearl buttons. Everything else about the shirt was superb, so how could it be missing this important piece? Then they found the answer. Thick Mother of Pearl buttons are not readily available. They decided to make it easier for everyone to find excellent pearl buttons, and so they created the company.

The brothers quickly discovered that there is a range of quality available for pearl buttons. Some are too thin or poorly made, and others have just the right combination of shine, thickness and quality. They made a promise to themselves - and the world - that Prestige Buttons would only offer the very best. Enjoy the top-quality products here on the site, and feel free to contact the brothers with any questions or comments.
