We offer a great select of pearl jewelry handcrafted with sterling silver. Pearls are a pure simple organic gem made by freshwater mollusks naturally or cultured by people with years of knowledge and experience. The love of pearl jewelry has a long history and is first written about in 2206 BC by a Chinese historian. The Japanese were the first to cultivate pearls in great care in 1893. Whether naturally or cultured, pearls are formed when a small irritant sits in the body of a mollusk and then the mollusk coats it with nacre. This process can take years and the longer the process the better or thicker nacre of the pearl.
