The Wedding Gem

April 3, 2009

Pearls are associated with love, success, happiness, modesty, chastity and purity. In ancient Greece, pearls were believed to promote marital happiness and prevent a newlywed woman from crying. The Greeks even called pearls the “wedding gem”. For these reasons, pearls are a popular choice for brides on their wedding day. Pearl jewelry is an ideal wedding gift (from a groom to his new wife). The tradition of pearls on your wedding day was started around 1000 BC in Hindu culture. Pearls are still considered a valued engagement/wedding gift.
I dont know about you but pearls make me happy.
