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.
