Pearls of Wisdom

In June [which has totally flown by] we celebrate the pearl, the creation of which is pretty incredible!

The process begins when an irritant, usually a parasite or piece of shell, gets caught in an oyster’s inner body. The oyster responds by secreting a crystalline substance, called nacre, which layers up around the irritant to protect itself, thus forming a pearl!

We love pearls for their timeless elegance and versatility.
I'm including some of the pearl pieces on my wish list below, but you can check out our full selection of pearls here!
