PEARL

Pearls - A symbol of purity, innocence, humility and sweetness.

Since ages these beautiful gems have served mankind in form of beauty-adding jewelry pieces.  Their fame reached heights during the Roman times when women were garlanded with pearls.

Pearls are the only live gems found on the surface of earth. They are hard rounded objects produced by oysters, when a natural microscopic substance or a grain of sand enters the oyster and settles on the shell and the oyster, irritated by the intruder, secretes the pearl substance called nacre to cover the irritant.
