Pearls ~ History & Lore ~

Pearls ~

Religious and royal symbolism around pearls spans east to west. The crowns of kings were often covered in gold and pearls. Sometimes the omniscient third eye of the Buddha is depicted as a pearl. John, the Apostle, wrote that the gates of New Jerusalem are colossal pearls. Pearls were considered a Christian symbol of the purity of Mary or the soul within the body.

The spherical shape of the pearl in itself is also significant. The planets, the sun, perhaps even the cosmos itself, like the pearl, is spherical. The shape represents completeness. Pearls, even in their form, are a metaphor illustrating how even what is most difficult in life can end in a state of great beauty.

Pearls ~ History & Lore ~

The lore of pearls from around the world is extensive and suggests additional nuanced meaning to the pearl. In the orient there are stories of how oysters would rise up, their shells open, to receive the precious rain. The Chinese believed that pearls tumbled from the mouths of dragons. Dragons symbolize the primordial power of the elements, particularly the clouds, sky, thunder and lightning.

This suggests that the pearl itself has primordial power within its folds of nacre.

The Romans echoed this sentiment when they described pearls as the "dews of heaven" that would tumble into the sea. Favored by the goddess of love, Venus, pearls were often dissolved in a chalice of wine which was offered to one's lover to assure successful love. Regardless, pearls have long been recognized for their medicinal values particularly for ailments of the heart.
