Pearls, which are suggested for anniversaries number 3 and 30, have a long history as a wedding gem, dating back to the early Hindus when Krishna gave his daughter a pearl on her wedding day. A symbol of romance and devotion, pearl’s love attraction was thought to be so strong that Cleopatra dissolved a pearl in wine and swallowed it to seduce Mark Antony. Pearls offer lots of options, from classic Akoya to bold South Sea to colorful, shapely freshwater varieties. Popular gifts include long pearl strands and necklaces that mix pearls with chain and other gems, as well as bespoke designs in drop earrings and standout rings.
