Description

  • Approximate beads per strand: 25
  • What is it: Pearls are produced within the soft tissue of select mollusks. They are formed as a defense mechanism against a potentially threatening irritant (such as debris) inside the shell. The mollusk creates a "pearl sac" to seal off the irritation. Pearls are really a result of an immune response.
  • History: Throughout history, many cultures prized pearls for their beauty, while other cultures placed very little value on pearls and instead placed value on the luminescent mother-of-pearl shells. Pearls were said to be one of the attractions which drew Julius Caesar to Britain.
  • Metaphysical Properties: Pearls are believed to promote purity, faith, charity, and personal integrity. Because of its water and lunar elements, it is said to balance emotions, especially to astrological water signs.
  • Because gemstones are natural materials, appearances may vary from bead to bead.
