Pearls

A few weeks and it will be Valentine's Day once again. Worried about what you want to get for your girlfriend or wife? How about giving them pearls?

A pearl is the oldest gemstone which is pretty much considered to be the most valuable. Unlike all other gems, the pearl is organic matter derived from a living creature - the oysters and mollusks.

How does an osyter make a pearl?

A grain of sand gets into an oyster's shell, which was to say under his skin, and it would irritate him. So the oyster would secrete something, squeeze out some essence of it's own self and coat the offending grain of sand with the essence, in order to stop the excruciating pain. Layer after layer of this mystical substance the oyster brought forth, until the grain of sand and the pain it had caused were not even a memory. The by product of the oyster's relief was the shimmering beauty of the pearl.

There is much folklore and tradition surrounding the Pearl. The pearl is the astral stone for the signs Gemini and Cancer. Pearls have also been called the 'teardrops of the moon' because of some mystical legend some people believe. Some even believe that pearls were formed by the passage of angels through the clouds of heaven.

During all these years of legends and traditions, the pearl has become the symbol of purity and innocence and it is often sewn into bridal gowns, or worn as jewelry by the bride.

Wouldn't it be lovely to see your lover wearing this symbol of purity and innocence?

And now, a site would bring you south sea pearls, from the Pearl Source.

They have Tahitian South Sea that originates from the Tahitian islands in the South Pacific, they have uniformed color necklace, multi colored necklaces and off round baroqued ones. They also have the Golden South Sea, White South Sea, and Freshwater Pearls.
