This Thanksgiving, we're taking some time to think about gratitude and all the things that add joy to our lives - like family, friends, and especially pearls. We may be surrounded by custom pearl necklaces every day, but we never tire of them because we appreciate how much joy they add to our customers' lives. In this blog post, we'll be sharing our five favorite reasons why we're thankful for pearls and why they add such an extra special touch to the holidays and every day.
Pearls Commemorate Memories and Milestones
Life is full of special milestones, including birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, graduations, and more. You can always cherish the memories and photographs from these precious days, but sometimes it's nice to have another tangible way to honor these milestones. Pearl jewelry is a beautiful and celebratory gift that can serve as a constant reminder of a meaningful occasion, especially when the jewelry includes an engravable clasp or charm.
Pearls Spark Our Curiosity and Imagination
A true wonder, pearls are like magic. It's amazing to think that something so beautiful can form in an oyster through a natural process, and human beings everywhere are simply in awe of the miracle that is a pearl. We're grateful for the fact that pearls spark humans' curiosity and inspire them to do things like discover new ways of cultivating different types of pearls in a sustainable way. Furthermore, pearls ignite the imagination of so many jewelry designers, who are using pearls in unique and artful ways.
Pearls Delight Us
When life is challenging or mundane, it can help to surround yourself with things that delight you and fill you with awe. Available in many beautiful colors and striking shapes, pearls are a simple way to put a smile on someone's face, and their beauty can continue to delight the wearer for many, many years.
Pearls Connect Us to History and Culture
Did you know that people have been wearing pearls since ancient times? When you wear a piece of pearl jewelry, you're adorning yourself with the same amazing treasure that Persian princesses and Roman rulers once wore. When you accessorize with pearls, you're celebrating all the cultures that have loved and prized pearls before you. Furthermore, you can pass down your pearls to future generations, so they can also feel connected to you through their jewelry.
Pearls Bring People Together
Last but not least, we're grateful for pearls because they bring people together. Pearls make a beautiful gift for a loved one, and the recipient will remember that moment of opening the gift box forever. She'll always associate her beautiful pearls with the person who gave them to her. Furthermore, many people are involved in the pearl cultivation and jewelry making process, and all those people are united in a unique way, thanks to a single pearl necklace.
What are you thankful for this year? Are you particularly appreciative of a special friend or loved one? If so, giving that person a gift like a custom pearl necklace can not only show how much you care but also perpetuate the feeling of gratitude.
