How and where did pearls come from?

Before studying current trends, you need to delve a little into history and find out what kind of mineral it is and what its superpower is.

Unique and incredible pearls are a gift from the depths of the seas - a kind of magical treasure. It's formed in the shells of mollusks, and the process of its formation lasts from six months to 2-3 years, depending on the type and size of the shell.

This is one of the oldest and most special gemstones in the world. In ancient times, in Japan, they believed that these were the tears of sea gods, mysterious inhabitants of the depths and mythical mermaids. Many civilizations also thought that it cures all kinds of diseases and has a certain healing power - it was even eaten, previously ground into fine precious flour. In the Middle Ages, it was also considered a great value and shrouded in a mystical halo.

The bright and luxurious 20s brought with them a new trend for extravagant and bold womens accessories. At the same time, jewelers began to look for a way to reduce the cost of obtaining this unique mineral and found it by creating faux pearl. It’s very difficult to distinguish it from the real one - it also shimmers beautifully, but its price is much lower, besides, it’s easy and simple to care for it. Since that moment, a lot of time has passed, and the fashion for pearls has appeared and disappeared.
