PEARLS


Gather round, my Pearl-loving pals, and let me spin you a tale as old as time – the story of the beloved Pearl! Picture this: Romans were so enamoured with these lustrous gems that they had laws to keep them exclusive. Talk about VIP treatment! And don't even get me started on Julius Caesar – the man knew how to make a statement, gifting his favourite mistress Servilia a huge Pearl worth a cool $1,500,000,000 in today's money. Now that's what I call Pearl power!

But here's the kicker – Pearls aren't your run-of-the-mill gems plucked from the earth's bosom. Oh no, they're crafted by the gentle maws of molluscs – think clams, oysters, mussels, and their aquatic crew. When a tiny intruder like a grain of sand or a pesky parasite decides to crash their party, these molluscs do what any self-respecting host would do – they layer up! Each layer of Pearly goodness forms around the irritant, creating that signature iridescent sheen we all know and love.

Here's where it gets interesting – the older the Pearl, the more layers it boasts, and the bigger it grows. It's like Mother Nature's own layer cake, but instead of frosting, you get that ethereal Pearl glow. So, whether you're channelling your inner Roman emperor or just craving a touch of oceanic elegance, Pearls are where it's at, my darlings!
