Pearl's origins and culture

Pearl is a kind of ancient organic gemstones, which are produced by pear shellfish and mother-of-pearl shellfish mollusks. Geological and archaeological study has proved that pearl has appeared on the earth early 0.2 billion years ago.

Pearl culture has a long-lasting history. Among the long history of more than 5 thousand years of Chinese civilization, there are more than 4 thousand years for which the pearl has been recorded and entered. Since the Qin Dynasty, pearl has been the luxuries of senior officials and noble lords of the imperial court.

In history, pearl has long been a symbol of richness, satisfactoriness, happiness and nobility. Bigwigs use pearls to manifest status, power, money and distinguished identity, and civilians use them to symbolize happiness, peace and good luck.

Traditionally, the pearl is divided into three types, seawater pearl, freshwater pearl and artificial pearl. And freshwater pearl refers to pearls which are produced in rivers. China’s natural freshwater pearl is mainly produced in lakes of provinces in southern China, and Zhuji is a famous hometown to pearl in Zhejiang.
