Every Woman Should Have a Pearl Necklace

Updated on October 10, 2014

Every Woman Should Have a Pearl Necklace

Being someone who enjoys classic looks, I believe that a string of pearls or a pearl pendant is a must for any woman's jewelry wardrobe. If you know of someone who doesn't have pearls, a pearl necklace would make a lovely gift for Christmas or for any special occasion like Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, your Anniversary or her Birthday.

Throughout this lens are also books and art on the theme of "The Pearl Necklace"

What is a Pearl, the Oldest Gem?

Unlike other gems, pearls are organic matter from living creatures, namely mollusks and oysters.

As a symbol of innocence and purity, the pearl often figures prominently in bridal gowns and bridal jewelry

Cultured Pearls Are

Pearls that are grown by artificially "encouraging" oysters to form a pearl. At a pearl "farm", the shell of the oyster responds to implanted tissue placed there by the cultivator, to form a pearl. These are not artificial pearls.

Who are the Pearl Fishers?

During the time that "The Pearl Fishers" takes place, there is no such thing as cultured pearls. The pearl fishers are the local men of the islands that hold their breath and dive into the sea to pluck pearls from the native oysters.
