Pearl and Crystal Earrings
Beloved as a symbol of elegance for thousands of years, pearls have often been coveted, collected, and are currently cherished for their amazing texture, form, and luminosity. Many people believe that many cultures discovered them along the shoreline while in a quest for food, but no one people can claim them as they lurk in every corner of the world. As the world's oldest gemstone, pearls have been adored by many civilizations as long as 2300 BC. Artifacts and relics from ancient Rome, China, Egypt, and Persia have surfaced and reside in museums around the world.
Until the 1900's the Persian Gulf was the main location of the world's largest oyster beds, and thus so became the heart of the pearl trade. Now the majority of pearls are cultured, most pearl jewelry is made from these easily cultured products. Natural pearl beds have been depleted and thus natural pearls are among the rarest and most expensive gems in the world, and they are only rarely found off of the coast of Bahrain and Australia.
