Pearls symbolize innocence and purity in many cultures, which explains why it is traditional for brides to wear white Pearls on their wedding day.
Apart from being one of three birthstones for June, Pearl is also the birthstone of people born under the zodiac signs Gemini and Cancer. But as with all birthstones, Pearls can be very beneficial for every zodiac sign, and we're going to cover all of it.
In Western cultures, the Pearl has astrological associations with the planet Venus. Like Pearls, the goddess of love came from the sea.
Many cultures have linked Pearls with the moon, referring to them as teardrops of the moon. Hindu folklore has also told tales of dewdrops falling from the moon toward the sea and Krishna plucked one dewdrop for his beloved daughter on her wedding day. Understanding this history makes it clear why Pearls are such popular gifts for weddings and anniversaries.
Because natural Pearls were so scarce and uncommon throughout history, only the wealthiest people could afford them. Pearls were specifically worn to denote more privilege and prestige by anyone who could afford them. In more modern times, Pearls equated to displaying luxury and elegance and became the mainstay of the powerful and elite.
But that isn't the case today. Thanks to celebrities' love for this beautiful gem, Pearls appear in popular movies like "Devil Wears Prada," where Channel couture became all the rage and Pearls have taken on a new life amongst millennials.
What most do not know is that Pearls also have the power to affect the body, mind, and spirit. Would it surprise you to know that they are highly beneficial for your health, balancing your feelings, aligning your chakras, invigorating and calming your mind, and setting your spirit in the right direction?
Let's break it down, shall we!
