PEARLS MAKE YOUR JEWELLERY BRIGHT
Pearls are for purity, pearls are for perfection. A pearl is a hard, generally spherical object produced within the soft tissue (specifically the mantle) of a living shelled mollusk. Just like the shell of a mollusk, a pearl is made up of calcium carbonate in minute crystalline form, which has been deposited in concentric layers.
The pearls are made of aragonite and conchiolin, the material mollusk shells are made of. The naturally formed pearls are of different shapes and sizes.
