The History of Precious Pearls

Straight from the oyster to your jewelry box, pearls are timeless and elegant treasures. Nestled deep in the sea’s surface, cultured pearls showcase just how beautiful nature’s creations can be. The iridescence of pearl jewelry enriches fashion and jewelry with sophistication.

 

Unlike gemstones that must be mined from the earth and cut to perfection, pearls are lustrous from the moment they’re plucked from an oyster shell. Thousands of years ago before written history, humans discovered the first pearl while scavenging the seashore for food. Throughout history, the pearl has been quite popular with references found in early religious and mythical texts.

 

Pearls were the ultimate symbol of wealth and social standing in Rome. During the Dark Ages, fair maidens sported pearl necklaces and gallant knights would even wear pearls into battle. They believed the magic of the shimmering pearls would protect them from danger. At one point, a number of European countries actually passed laws forbidding anyone but the high born to wear them.

 

Thankfully, we have a large pearl collection at Brian Gavin Diamonds to make you feel like royalty.
