Centuries ago, pearls were considered the most valuable gemstones in the world. Whoever possessed a string of equally sized and shaped pearls was a rich and powerful figure. In the ancient Roman Empire and Egypt, these perfect lustrous miracles were a symbol of wealth, power, and taste. A pearl engagement ring represented harmony and humility and was used to seal the love of two people in the purest of ways. While the pearl engagement rings’ meaning is still kept nowadays, the 19th century heavily popularized the diamond engagement ring (mostly by DeBeers). Today, we consider such rings as being “traditional” and “standard” and almost forgot about the beauty and the exquisite simplicity of a pearl engagement ring.
