Many thousand years ago long before written history human beings probably discovered the first pearl while searching the seashore for food.
Through out history the pearl with it's warm inner glow and shimmering iridescence has been one of the most highly prized gems.
Ancient Egyptians prized pearls so much that they were buried with them.
Cleopatra reportedly dissolved a single pearl in a glass of wine and drank it, simply to win a wager with Mark Anthony that she could consume the wealth of an entire nation in just one meal!
Pearls were considered the ultimate symbol of wealth and social standing.
During the dark ages white fair maidens of nobility cherished pearl neclaces, gallant knights wore them into battle. They believed the magic of these lustrious gems would protect them from harm.

In 1916 famed french jeweler J Cartier bought his landmark store on the New Yorks 5th Avenue. by trading 2 pearl neclaces for the valuable property.
