Since the beggining of time pearls have been revered as one of the world’ most beautiful and magical gems. Today, cultured pearls are the foundation of every woman’s jewellery wardrobe.
The ancient Egyptians prized pearls so much they were buried with them! Cleopatra reportedly dissolved a single pearl in a glass of wine and drank it, simply to win a bet with Mark Antony – that she could consume the wealth of an entire nation in just one glass of wine!
In 1916, famed jeweller Jaques Cartier bought his landmark store on New York’s fifth avenue, by trading two strings of pearls for the property!
Today, with the advent of cultivation, pearls are affordable, and available, to everyone.
Every woman deserves to have at least one pearl necklace.
