    Thank you for interesting facts about pearls. I've heard that pearl with defect brings negatives. I was wondering if wearing drilled or un-drilled pearl makes any difference.

    There were some interesting facts listed here about pearls. I love pearls and wrote a couple of articles about them, as well. However, you have some facts that I wasn't aware of. I didn't know there was a mantra for wearing pearls nor did I know that it was thought it was good for the hot tempered to wear them. I enjoyed reading this.
