Pearls are highly
...anyone with a title from the above choices can be proud and hold their heads high...they too symbolize purity and quality.
Pearls themselves are sometimes named for their type as in Akoya, South Sea, Tahitian, Freshwater, or their shape, such as Button, Oval, Baroque, and in some countries they are named for shapes of local things like Shoppa which is a type of bread and pearls that look like that bread get that name. Be careful when choosing pearls, as some are called natural, when it is the color that is natural and not the origin. True natural pearls are ones found randomly in the wild and haven't been interfered with by man in any way. Also, in one country I visited all Akoya pearls were labeled "Mikimoto" pearls...so do your homework when buying pearls and thoroughly investigate a pearl name's true meaning.
