“Queen of the Gems”
Their elegance comes from being both simple and spectacular at the same time. Each pearl is natural and unique. Unlike other gems, pearls do not require cutting, faceting or polishing. As a result, it takes many years and hundreds of hours to create one piece of collection quality pearl jewelry.
Pearls are synonymous with longevity, class, nobility, and purity. Pearls have been at the center of ancient civilizations and have countless religious references. Cleopatra used a single pearl as a symbol of Egypt’s heritage and wealth to prove it was above conquest by Rome. Of course, the bible uses the “Pearly Gates” to symbolize the beginning our eternal reward. Countless other stories of exclusivity, rarity, and culture have combined to give pearls a reverence shared by no other gem.
