Better Than your Mother's Pearls - Part I

June is pearl month. The pearl is one of the most fascinating and mysterious of all of nature's gemstones. This video is fascinating and gives a great perspective on the difficult and tenuous job of pearl farmers. It gives a greater appreciation of the value of these beautiful gems . If you are a June baby consider yourself fortunate to have the pearl as your birthstone. In the next few days I will be posting some lovely pearl jewelry.
