Ancient Pearls Karipearls Ezine

I've recently added historic information to my site about ancient pearls written by Kunz & Stevenson from their 1908 book.

That link will get you started and then you can proceed to learn about ancient pearls from several locations around the world.

Surviving Antique Pearls
Roman pearl information
Hebrew pearl information
Persian information on pearls.
Chinese information on pearls

On some pages I've added photos of places and people that are mentioned to help us better understand the times.

I'm crazy about historic information and enjoy looking at and photographing pearls in museums around the world. The necklace above is in the Louvre Museum in Paris, France. It looks to me like the same one in the Kunz & Stevenson book.

I wasn't feeling well the afternoon I was at the Louvre. Here you can read about the day I dragged myself around the Louvre Museum.

I'll keep my eyes peeled for pearl related items during the next two weeks as I accompany my husband to Malawi. I've never been to the African continent before. It should be fun and interesting.

Thank you for your interest in pearls!

God bless,
