Why Women Love Pearls

April 30, 2015

Pearl is the oldest known gem. Some early cultures believed that the pearl was created when a dew drop fell from the heavens and was swallowed by oysters. Pearls have been called the 'teardrops of the moon' with some believing that pearls were formed by the passage of angels through the clouds of heaven.

For many centuries it was considered the most valuable gem and has been favored by royalty as a signature of the elite. Whilst any gem might serve as a gift to express tender sentiments,the offering of a pearl is unfailingly the mark of good taste, whilst as an adornment, nothing can speak so eloquently of one’s refinement as the pure and lustrous elegance of a pearl. 

One of the most important pearls of the world, La Peregrina Pearl, has a recorded history of 550 years and was bought by Richard Burton as a gift for his wife, Elizabeth Taylor. It was sold by Christie’s in 2011 for $11.8 million. The strong auction market shows the appreciation of the value of natural pearls.

Pearl is a timeless beauty. It symbolizes Purity, Spiritual Transformation, Charity, Honesty, Wisdom and Integrity, all the best within us.

It evokes images of all that is simple, unique and naturally elegant. A perfect gift this Mother's Day as an elegant reminder of the priceless treasures in a woman's life.
