Seed Pearl Earrings
Pearls, have been highly beloved, sought after, and cherished through ancient times long before written history, as well as in the modern era. It is thought that ancient peoples discovered them along the shoreline while scourging for food, but they have been found all over the world. As one of the oldest gemstones, they have been considered a fashionable decor and status symbol since at least 2300 BC when they were found as gifts to Chinese royalty
Prior to the 20th century, pearls were all natural and required dangerous dives to retrieve them. The Persian Gulf was extremely valuable to the pearl trade because of its vast natural oyster beds. Now the vast majority of pearls are cultured, and natural pearls are among the rarest gem around being found rarely off the coast of Bahrain and Australia.
The Beauty of Seed Pearls
Seed pearls are basically teeny-tiny baby small pearls or infant pearls. Because they are so small, they can be clustered together to form different forms and pieces. The beauty of seed pearls is that they require many woven together to form a complete piece of jewelry, and therefore, there are many points of light reflection.
