Pearls: Timeless Elegance & Symbolism

Posted by Cambria Connell on

As we step into the month of June, we dive into the world of pearls – the exquisite gemstones that have captivated hearts and adorned jewelry for centuries.
At Ebb + Flow, we celebrate the timeless beauty and significance of pearls by crafting jewelry pieces that embody elegance, sophistication, and practicality, making them perfect for everyday wear.

Pearls have a rich history dating back thousands of years, revered by ancient civilizations such as the Egyptians, Greeks, and Romans. They were treasured as symbols of wealth, purity, and wisdom. In ancient Rome, pearls were considered the ultimate status symbol and were often worn by high-ranking officials and royalty.


Throughout history, pearls have held various symbolic meanings across different cultures. They are often associated with purity, innocence, and love, making them popular choices for wedding jewelry. Pearls are also believed to promote inner wisdom and tranquility, offering a sense of calmness and balance to the wearer.

1. Pearls are the Birthstone for June: Along with alexandrite and moonstone, pearls are one of the birthstones for the month of June.
2. Natural vs. Cultured: While natural pearls are formed by mollusks in the wild, cultured pearls are created through human intervention by inserting an irritant into the mollusk to stimulate pearl production.
3. Pearls Come in Various Colours: While white pearls are the most traditional and popular, pearls can also be found in a range of colours including black, pink, lavender, and gold.
4. The Largest Pearl: The world's largest pearl, known as the Pearl of Lao Tzu or the Pearl of Allah, weighs a staggering 14 pounds and is valued at millions of dollars.
5. Pearls in Art and Literature: Pearls have inspired countless artists, writers, and poets throughout history. They have been featured prominently in literature, such as in Shakespeare's "The Merry Wives of Windsor" and John Steinbeck's "The Pearl."

At Ebb + Flow, we believe that pearls are more than just gemstones – they are symbols of timeless elegance and grace. Our handcrafted jewelry pieces are designed to celebrate the natural beauty and allure of pearls, offering a touch of sophistication to any ensemble.
We invite you to discover the magic of pearls – a treasure from the depths of the ocean by exploring our pearl jewelry collection!
