Pearls | Freshwater Pearl Beads - Pearls have been used for personal ornament for thousands of years. They were probably one of the earliest gems found by prehistoric man, being naturally-perfect objects which required no additional craftsmanship. Because of their natural beauty, they are associated with the matrix of life and some say that the pearl helps balance one's bodily rhythms and hormonal levels with lunar cycles. A simple 'string of pearls' is classic, but the unique luster of pearls in a range of colors makes this gem versatile in an array of designs. Limited to In-stock Quantities; While supplies last.
