The Lustrous Pearl
Coveted for centuries, pearls are the world’s oldest and most fascinating gems. It’s unknown when or who first discovered the pearl, but we do know how they’re formed. A pearl's life begins when a particle, such as sand, makes its way into an oyster or a mussel. The mollusk then produces a substance that coats the particles layer by layer until a dazzling pearl is formed. Today, pearls symbolize purity, clarity and loyalty. Given their timeless beauty and symbolic meanings, pearls make meaningful gifts for your loved ones, especially those born in June. At Bere, we love the natural elegance of the pearl, which is why we carry an extensive collection of jewelry that features this shining stone. Let's explore a few of our favorite pearl pieces.
According to ancient legend, Cleopatra dissolved priceless pearls in her wine and drank them to show off her wealth. While you won't want to put this Yellow Gold Bujukan Bead Split Bracelet in wine, it will certainly shine as brightly as any piece a Pharaoh wore. The delicate gold beading encompasses the true beauty of the pearl. Adding even more radiance to this stunning bracelet, diamonds are carefully placed at the base of the pearl cap, illuminating this classic bujukan style bangle.
Pearls of Wisdom
Long ago, early Chinese civilizations believed that pearls were hidden in between the teeth of dragons. You gained wisdom when you slayed a dragon and claimed the pearls as your own. This is where the phrase “pearls of wisdom” came from. Rest assured, you don’t have to slay any dragons to get your hands on these Shy Creation Cultured Pearl Huggie Earrings. These earrings are a modern take on the classic pearl. The design of these stunning hoop earrings add a contemporary feel and they complement anyone’s personal style.
Teardrops of the Moon
Pearls have been closely associated with the moon in the past. Some cultures believed that pearls were “teardrops from the moon.” This Monica Rich-Kosann birthstone pendant plays off of this mystical idea. The pearls glow softly in this crescent-shaped pendant, reminding us of luminous beauty.
