Of all the precious stones, pearls are perhaps the purest gift from nature, almost entirely shaped without man’s assistance- and pearl rings are a timeless, classic way to showcase this lustrous stone. Pearl ring jewelry’s natural luminescence is a show-stopper, whether featured in an elegant vintage setting, or boldly shown off in a modern pearl ring that doesn’t look anything like your grandmother’s pearl ring jewelry. June’s birthstone, pearl is traditional at weddings, and pearl rings are imbued with a romance and quiet beauty perfect for any occasion. Truly gifts from the ocean, pearl rings have been treasured for centuries for their stones’ peerless glow and miraculous origins. Although the cultured pearls most often used in pearl ring jewelry are created by farmers when a piece of foreign material is inserted into the tissue of an oyster, pearls are truly made by nature itself. Unlike any other precious gemstone, pearls need no cutting or polishing to enhance their beauty. Even though pearls are harvested en masse on pearl farms, producing a quality pearl is an extremely rare event- making each pearl ring a rare and precious miracle. In the natural world, only three or four oysters out of every three tons of mollusks will produce the perfect pearls that glow in pearl ring settings! Pearls’ unique origins have been fascinating humanity for millennia, giving pearl rings a timeless appeal and mystique. Hindu lore believed pearls were dewdrops crystallized by the sea, while Persians theorized that pearls were born when a rainbow met the Earth. Ancient Romans believed that water that dropped from Venus’ body when she rose from the sea was turned into pearls by her beauty. Today, pearls are still powerful symbols of love, purity and wisdom, and pearl rings inherently possess a deep romance and glamour that only nature could bestow.
