Pearls hold the serene beauty and divine wisdom of the Ocean’s depths. These tidal treasures have mystified humankind since time eternal, captivating shore dwellers and inspiring whimsical folklore. What we know of the pearl is this: They are the only gems created by living beings. A pearl forms when one of these special creatures, a mollusk, discovers an irritation within themselves. This bothersome presence can be as tiny as a grain of sand under its shell. With patience and purpose, this irritation is turned into a beautiful smooth jewel.
This teaches us that even the things we may see as our greatest imperfections can inspire our finest achievements!
