From the Persian Gulf to China and India, the pearl has been used for thousands of years BC. The Greeks had given it the name “Tears of Aphrodite” in reference to the goddess of love.
It was with Alexander the Great and his conquest of the Orient, that the pearl was popularized in jewelry.
Nevertheless, it is the development by the Japanese of the pearl culture in the middle of the twentieth century that will make the pearl a real must in jewelry.
