Today real pearls are among one of the most coveted gemstones in the world. Not only do they look elegant, serene and beautiful, they add a touch of glamour to any outfit in your wardrobe.
But what do pearls really symbolize?
As you will soon discover that for many different parts of the world pearls symbolic meaning varies somewhat.
For example some eastern philosophies equate the pearls to spiritual wisdom and awareness.
Yet in many Christian societies today is that there are some who believe that pearls were formed after Adam and Eve were banished from the Garden of Eden by God. It is said once they were banished they cried and their tears then became pearls.
