Pearls: The Queen of Gems

Posted by on 3/26/2013
With a history that spans more than four millenniums, pearls reign supreme as the world’s oldest—and at one time, most expensive—gem. In fact, before the development of cultured pearl necklaces in the early 20th century, natural pearls were valued at staggeringly high figures that only the wealthiest and most powerful could afford. For example, it is said that Cleopatra once owned a pair of pearl earrings worth more than $9 million in today’s money, and that the proceeds from the sale of a single pearl could bankroll a whole military campaign in the ancient Roman Empire. Although pearls are no longer considered the queen of gems in the modern era, they are still popular the world over because of their beauty, simplicity, and timelessness. In addition, they are June’s official birthstone, as well as the traditional anniversary jewelry gift given to mark the 3rd and 30th years of matrimony, making them as relevant today as ever before. Fortunately for all of us, pearls are far more affordable and accessible now than in Cleopatra’s time. For instance, you can buy a pair of gorgeous pearl and garnet earrings for less than $100 at Amoro.com—a price that would have been unthinkable a couple thousand years ago! Other top-sellers on our site include: • White, black, and multi-colored cultured pearl necklaces • Cultured freshwater pearl and diamond earrings set in white gold • A white cultured Akoya pearl bracelet with a 14kt yellow gold clasp • A triple strand white cultured freshwater pearl necklace (AA quality) Whether you need special anniversary jewelry for a milestone celebration, a gift for a June birthday, or merely want to augment your personal collection, be sure to check out our entire line of pristine cultured pearl necklaces, bracelets, and earrings at Amoro.com.
