Why Pearls Represent True Love

Pearls have been important to even the most ancient of civilizations and it’s really no wonder that each culture has an age-old folktale about where these gemstones from the ocean originated. From the tears of gods to the drops of light falling from the moon, there has been a mysterious aura surrounding pearls. However, over the passing years and movement into contemporary jewelry trends, pearls have come to symbolize purity, strength, balance, and love. As Valentine’s Day approaches, we’re exploring just exactly why they are the perfect gift for the month of love!

 

Romance

When it comes to traditional romance, it’s really hard to top pearls. From Cleopatra to Elizabeth Taylor, and even royalty around the world, these gems have been a firm favorite between spouses and suitors. Pearls are also viewed as more pure and ecologically friendly than other gems like diamonds. This is because pearl farmers need to take great care to keep the mollusks happy and healthy, with their waters pollution-free, in order to benefit off of cultured pearl production.

 

Health

In many cultures, particularly in Asia and the Middle East, pearls were thought to be imbued with magical properties. However, today we know that there are several health benefits to wearing pearls. This also means that gifting someone you love with pearl jewelry is a contribution towards their wellbeing too, and understandably this has made pearl engagement rings a particularly popular choice.

 

Versatility

You can buy pearl pieces for almost any kind of person. With various shades available, all skin tones can look great with jewelry showcasing these gems. It can also be a wonderful gift from a parent to a child, as the symbolism is steeped in connotations of pure, unconditional love. This is a wonderful way to also express your love to friends or mentors too. Mother-of-pearl accessories are always an exquisite sign of respect and appreciation.
