The classic strand of pearls has an elegantly organic new look with this stunning baroque pearl necklace, darkly opalescent and perfect for bringing the magical energy of the ocean to any outfit. Pearls symbolize wisdom acquired through experience. They are believed to attract wealth and luck and offer protection. Known for their calming effect, pearls can balance one's karma and strengthen relationships. The pearl is also said to symbolize the purity, generosity, integrity, and loyalty of its wearer. According to Hindu folklore, pearls were dewdrops that fell out of the night sky and into the moonlit sea. It is said that the deity Krishna (or Vishnu) plucked the first pearl from the ocean floor and gave it to his daughter Pandaia on her wedding day as a symbol of love, union, and purity.
