Mankind has admired, even worshipped, pearls. Persian mythology called them “the tears of the gods” while Ancient Chinese legend claims the moon holds the power to create pearls.
Pearls are unique, they are the only gem formed within a living creature. Cultured pearls come in many beautiful colours, from pale cream and white to rose, gold, gray, and black.
There are four main types of cultured pearl: Akoya, South Sea, Tahitian, and Freshwater, each having unique qualities that differentiates them. Today's pearls are both classic and contemporary, pieces to be worn on a daily basis or indeed a more formal occasion.
