The pearl is a hard object found in the soft tissue of a saltwater or freshwater mollusk. The colour variates between shiny white, beige and blue.
Pearls were born in this world rather than being found. And what is even more extraordinary is that they are found in the deep blue depths of the ocean. The moon pulls the tides, which infuses these tiny gems with all the power and grace of divine feminine energy. They are connected to nature, wisdom and new beginnings and symbolically invite us to dive deeply into our inner oceans and discover the treasures shining beneath the surface.
In history, the pearl was given a very special role. The first traditions come from China, where it is still a symbol of wisdom, dignity and wealth. In the Arab world, it was used as a medicine and was considered an aphrodisiac and a remedy for melancholy or insanity. In Japan it meant luck, and in India, it stood for many children. The pearl necklace of the Persian king Achaemenid, which he left to history 4000 years ago, can still be admired in the Egyptian Museum in Cairo today. The origin of the name of the pearl is still being determined today. The ancient Greeks called her "Margarita", which is said to have gotten this name from the Persians. There, pearls were called "Morvarid" (Child of Light) because, according to an old Persian myth, they were created by transforming a drop of dew in the moonlight. The Romans adopted the Greek name and applied it to their loved ones.
Pearls add experience to life. They show the way to deal with problems and confront them. In this way, they uncover blockages or trauma and help to overcome inner conflicts, pain, disappointments and grief. Pearls thus strengthen spiritual growth and bring more satisfaction. Pearl necklaces are also said to increase intuition and warn of misfortune or other dangers when people are particularly susceptible to them.
