Pearls have symbolized status and wealth for thousands of years, a tradition that continued into modern culture, favored by royalty and the wealthy in Europe, Asia and around the world, each of whom treasured and passed along pearls from generation to generation. Pearls are the only gemstone formed within a living creature, exquisite spherical shaped treasures from the earth's ponds, lakes, seas and oceans. Ancient Chinese legend spoke to the ability of the pearl to protect one from fire. Europe saw pearls as symbols of modesty, chastity and purity.
Le Vian® Strawberry PearlsTM are very high grade freshwater pearls from Japan. They are very round, up to 7mm, with high nacre and are natural in color.
The journey of a diamond in the rough to the sparkling diamond design you love is a fascinating story, one that began billions of years ago, deep within the earth where a diamond has formed under extreme heat and pressure. Its ascent from its natural home is forced by nature or man where it is then cleaved, cut and polished revealing its natural beauty. Diamonds are the hardest material on earth and the only gem that is composed of only one element, carbon.
Vanilla Diamonds® are specially selected to adorn Le Vian® designs – from breathtaking one-of-a-kind red carpet favored designs in Vanilla Gold® to the trendsetting combination of Strawberry ‘N Vanilla® featuring the blushing hue of Strawberry Gold® topped with Vanilla Diamonds®.
