Pearls were once more rare and expensive than diamonds. They hold a rich history among many cultures and are believed to offer protection, as well as attract good luck and wealth. They are well-known for their calming effects. Pearls are symbolic of the wearer’s loyalty, generosity, integrity, and purity. So it's no wonder that they have now become the go-to material for wedding jewellery and as a gift to celebrate special partnerships and love.
