The Significance of Pearls for Bridesmaid Gifts
The rarity and elegance of pearls make them a stunning gift to give at a wedding. Whether the pearls are for bridesmaids or the bride, they make a beautiful addition to any wedding outfit when worn as earrings or in a necklace There are many different types of pearl and they grow in a variety of different shapes, sizes, and colours. The colours of pearls signify different things symbolically, with white pearls suggesting innocence and honesty and pink or rose pearls representing love and friendship. Before the development of cultured pearls, only natural pearls were available. The only way to find pearls naturally was to manually gather oysters and mussels from the ocean floor and the bottom of lakes – a risky process with low success probability. This is what first gave pearls their status as rare and valuable objects of desire. Now, most pearls are cultured in saltwater farms in Japan, China, and Vietnam.
