Many different cultures have used this stone for jewelry because of it's natural beauty and refined look. Not surprisingly, there are a myriad of lunar associations with pearls. It’s considered to be the daughter of the Moon.  In ancient Vedic texts, the pearl is born of the Earth’s waters and the heaven’s powers, fertilized by a flash of lightning. Like pearls, the goddess of love came from the sea.  Some stories say white pearls are tears shed by the gods. One legend says the tears Eve cried when she was banished from Eden turned to pearls.  

The unique feature of the pearl is that it is the only gem to be formed by a living creature. This is what gives pearls the ability to come in many different colors, shapes and sizes.  Every step of a Pearl's journey helps to change and define it's outcome: type of oyster, water cleanliness, and the location.  From a natural pearl to a cultured pearl, each type of pearl has a unique look, shape, color and polish to it. 

As usual, Gurhan enjoys using unusual pearls in tiny sizes, unexpected colors and interesting shapes.  Have a look through our wide range of pearl jewelry and find the perfect gift for the June baby in your life.
