Pearl jewellery is one of the most versatile types of adornments known to man. Pearls exude wealth without being ostentatious, go with any outfit, and are appropriate for any occasion. These gems of the sea have been prized for thousands of years, with queens and empresses, businesswomen and politicians alike reveling in their ability to project an image of power.
On the flip side, pearl jewellery also stands for purity and virtue, making pearls a favored gift for young girls and women. Fathers traditionally give their little girls a strand of pearls for an important event such as a Sweet Sixteen birthday, prom night or graduation. Mothers arrange for their daughters to wear pearls as brides, and the women and girl attendants are also often bedecked with pearls.
