pearl in the shell - EAT LOVE SAVOR Luxury Lifestyle MagazineThe Pearl. The oldest known gem. This pure, unique and everlastingly beautiful symbol of perfection.

For centuries the pearl (in Latin which literally means ‘unique’) was considered the most valuable of gems. There is a fragment of the oldest piece of pearl, found in the sarcophagus of a Persian princess dated in 520 BC on display in the Louvre in Paris. In classical Rome there were restrictions on who could wear pearls. Throughout Europe pearls were worn by both sexes and adorned their clothing. However, in the 13th and 14th centuries there were also laws regarding who could wear them; forbidding teachers and lawyers from wearing fringes or chains with pearls.

Coco Chanel and Pearls

Pearls are made by nature, and in the 1930’s cultured pearls arrived making pearls more affordable and available than ever before. While there was initial resistance, one designer most notably embraced them: Coco Chanel. She made the gems a part of her designs. Availability has not diminished the image of this great timeless classic.
