Pearls of Wisdom: Check out Pearls at Cash America

Traditionally known as June’s birthstone, pearls have been highly prized around the world for thousands of years.

Pearls are formed when an irritant such as a microscopic parasite or grain of sand gets inside the shell of a salt water mollusk — usually oysters. Over time, the oyster forms a protective hard sac around the irritant to seal it off. The result is a luPearls, June's birthstoneminescent pearl. Pearls created in this fashion naturally are extremely rare and quite expensive. Most of the pearls that we wear today are cultured in hatcheries and are more affordable.

Beyond their monetary value, pearls have embodied different cultural, social and religious meanings and have played an important role in many societies: In addition to being a sign of prosperity, many cultures consider pearls a symbol of health and wellbeing.

Pearls were also often ground into powder and added to medicinal tonics and ointments. Pearls also have a history of representing purity, chastity and innocence. Today, many societies use pearls to adorn wedding gowns.

For most cultures, pearls have long been a symbol of luxury and wealth. In ancient Asian literature, pearls are mentioned as gifts for royalty, tributes to gods and are considered to be powerful good luck charms. Early Greek and Roman cultures associated pearls with the moon, while Persian myths describe the gems both as the tears of the gods and as a symbol of hope.
