I especially love this quote from a recent Etsy article, Tears of Mermaids: The Secret Story of Pearls.
"Pearls reflect light, they’re organic, the way they come out of the shell is pretty much the way any craftsperson or jeweler will display them. You can’t change the shape of them like you can gold, for example, which you can mold to whatever shape you want, or diamonds, which are cut and faceted. Pearls are as close to natural adornment as it gets. They have a natural luminescence — they literally light up your face when you wear them. " ~ Stephen BloomReally, what more can yo say after that?
