    Anamika - I'm so glad I ran across your hub. I loved it! Pearls are my all time favorite gems, and an absolute wardrobe staple. I don't think I ever saw my grandmother when she wasn't wearing a string of pearls. They are timeless and classic. I enjoyed the bit of history and information - thanks for sharing!
