Pearls are one of the most valuable gifts that nature produces. They are recognized around the world as a symbol of wealth and perfection. Did you know that it is actually the oldest known gem? Throughout history, this precious gemstone has been treasured by the wealthy and elite. As well as being a symbol of status, pearls have also been used as currency by natives in the South Seas. During the Middle Ages, in medieval Europe, a law was made that they could only be worn by royalty or people of high nobility.
