Designer Justin Graham

Between 2007 and 2011, Treasures of Australia has celebrated five glittering prizes found in Australia:  Sapphires, Opals, Diamonds, Gold, and Pearls.  The final release in this series features the pearl. 

Oysters create natural pearls by depositing layers of nacre over a grain of sand or other intruder that settles inside the shell.  Cultured pearls develop around a bead implanted by human hand. 

Since ancient times, the pearl has been a symbol of purity and femininity.  It is the oldest known gem, and for centuries, it was considered the most valuable.  The pearl is the birthstone for those born in June.
