"Pearls are always appropriate." - Jackie O.

"A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls." - Coco Chanel.

"All art is autobiographical. The pearl is the oyster's autobiography." - Federico Fellini.

A PEARL is a hard object produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a clam, a pearl is made up of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers. The ideal pearl is perfectly round and smooth, but many other shapes of pearls (baroque pearls) occur. The finest quality natural pearls have been highly valued as gemstones and objects of beauty for many centuries, and because of this, the word pearl has become a metaphor for something very rare, fine, admirable, and valuable.
