Good evening! I hope your Monday was good and you are ready for a new portion of inspiration. And today I’d like to talk about something really beautiful and namely – about pearl jewelry.
‘Pearl is a hard object produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusc. Just like the shell of a clam, a pearl is composed of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. The ideal pearl is perfectly round and smooth, but many other shapes (baroque pearls) occur. The finest quality natural pearls have been highly valued as gemstones and objects of beauty for many centuries.’ Because of this, pearl jewelry has become a metaphor for something rare, fine, admirable and valuable.
