Pearls symbolize the best in us — purity, honesty, wisdom, self-acceptance, and integrity. They add a touch of stateliness to our look and personality. Pearls represent a mirror with its own reflection. They give us a hint as to how we actually appear in the eyes of other people.
Pearls come in a huge spectrum of colours: silvery-white, pinkish-red, golden, greyish silver, bluish, and black. They give off a characteristic waxy glow. Pearls are made in the interior of the mussels and oysters when a hard substance (usually a piece of sand) enters their interior, followed by secretion of layers of nacre around the irritant. The end result is usually a unique Pearl of magnificent beauty.
Some of the most attractive Pearls originate in the warm seas of the Pacific. The world’s largest Pearls producers are situated in Thailand, Sri Lanka, China, Japan, and California. The most famous cultivated freshwater Pearls come from Spain, China, and Thailand.
