Natural pearls are created when an irritant such as a grain of sand works its way into an oyster, mussel, or clam. As a defense mechanism, fluid is produced to coat the irritant. Layer upon layer of this coating, "nacre," is deposited until a luminous pearl is formed.
Through its journey, the Pearl embodies tenets of patience, protection, and prosperity. The majestic size of the South Sea Pearl inspired the architectural design of the Sea Queen Ring.
