Antiquity
Pearls are a whitish, perfectly round rarity found in a living shelled mollusk. The word comes from the Latin perna, which means leg, named after the mutton leg-shaped bivalve in which pearls are found. Like all beautiful things, Pearls are uncommon, remarkable, and impractical. They are a synergy of sand, the pressure of the sea, incubation. Indeed, the formation of the pearl itself is a reflection of its beauty.
The Pearl
The term “pearly gates” is used to describe the kingdom of heaven, and is a testament to the beauty and power of the pearl. The idea being that heaven is as beautiful as the most perfect pearl.
