This classic and charming freshwater pearl necklace is a must have. Pearls, also known as angel tears, are the only gemstones of organic origin. For centuries, they have been among the most valuable gems in the world and played a significant role in alternative medicine. Pearls are credited with both magical properties and healing powers.
In ancient times, it was believed that the first pearls were created at the birth of Aphrodite, the goddess of love, beauty, and fertility, who was born from a sea foam off the coast of Cyprus. When she went to the shore in a shell, the drops flowing from her hair turned into pearls. According to a mystical symbolism, the pearl symbolizes the best in people: wisdom, pureness, innocence, honesty. Therefore, for centuries it has been a symbol of young girls and women before marriage. It was also recommended to young women because of the healing properties. It was believed that a pearl worn around the neck or by the heart, stimulates femininity, supports fertility, makes it easier for women to become pregnant, and protects against an evil look and curse.
