pearls: a gift of nature


I love pearls. They speak of romance and tenderness. Purity and humility. Pearls have been symbolic of chastity and innocence. Pearls are mentioned in most major religious scripture. They have been used as a symbol of beauty and grace in many cultures. Pearls are the oldest known gemstone. I can't think of any other gemstone that gives me as much joy to work with, as a pearl.


"The pearl owes nothing to man. It is absolutely a gift of nature on which man cannot improve." ~ George F. Kunz
