History

Pearls are unique as they are the only gemstones formed within living sea creatures and need neither faceting nor polishing to sparkle. Besides every single pearl is unique in colour, lustre, size, surface and shape, which all depend on the nature of the mollusc and the environment it comes from.

 

Virtues

Brides have historically coveted the gleam and shine of pearls. From Antiquity ceremonies to modern weddings, pearls have splendidly adorned their necks, wrists and fingers. Symbol of truth and balance, pearls constitute the perfect gift to ensure your to-be or long-been wife with all your love and affection.
