The legend and lore that surround pearls is unmatched by almost any other gem, every coastal culture known to historians has treasured pearls as precious gifts from the ocean and although generally considered a 'feminine' or 'woman's gem', the silky feel of pearls against your skin is unequaled by any other material, whether from nature, or made by humans.
The famous gemologist Frederick Kunz wrote of pearls: "The diamond is to the pearl as the sun is to the moon, and we might well call one the “king-gem” and the other the “queen-gem.” The diamond, like a knight of old — brilliant and resistant, is the emblem of fearlessness and invincibility; the pearl, like a lady of old — pure and fair to look upon, is the emblem of modesty and purity."
