Pearls are organic gemstones that are formed by shelled molluscs, and made up of nacre (mother-of-pearl). Pearls are perfect for bridal jewelry because they represent purity, integrity and loyalty. In ancient China, people believed that pearls provided protection from fire and dragons. It is believed by some that those who sleep with a pearl under their pillow will be blessed with children, Pearls are the birthstone for June and are traditionally used to commemorate the third and thirtieth wedding anniversaries.
Your earrings will come ready for gifting, packaged in a sturdy paper kraft box with a soft foam insert to protect and cushion the jewelry.
