A little history… The Romans prized pearls more than diamonds and they were considered the ultimate symbol of wealth and social standing. The Greeks held the pearl in high esteem for its beauty and association with love and marriage. The Ancient Egyptians prized pearls so much they were buried with them. 

Legend has it, Cleopatra dissolved a single pearl in a glass of wine and drank it – simply to win a wager with Mark Antony that she could consume the wealth of an entire nation in just one meal.
