About Pearls

Pearls have fascinated civilizations for thousands of years. Although it is unknown when pearls were first discovered, civilizations in China, India, and the Middle East are among the first civilizations known to have cherished these rare treasures. Over time, pearls have continued to grow in popularity, and today, they are one of the most popular gemstones.

Regardless of whether a pearl is natural or cultured, both types of pearls are formed through a similar process. Pearls are formed inside the shell of certain mollusks as a defense mechanism against a potentially threatening irritant such as a parasite inside its shell, or an attack from outside, injuring the mantle tissue. The mollusk creates a pearl sac to seal off the irritation.
