Pearls Historically symbolic of purity, innocence and faith, pearls enhance personal integrity and help clear the mind so that it can be a clean channel for wisdom and spiritual guidance. They were once thought to be the tears of gods.
A pearl necklace worn four thousand years ago by the Persian queen Achemenid can still be admired today. The pearl jewelry of the Queen of Sheba has become legendary. It has been told that Cleopatra served wine with ground pearls in it to her more important guests. In the Bible (Job 28:18) it says “The price of wisdom is above pearls”. And Lucifer is said to have broken his teeth due to his craving for pearls. Pearls are from the marine animal kingdom, but most often they are considered precious stones.
