The first time I received a pearl necklace it was a gift for my college graduation. Apparently, that’s the traditional gift because I also received matching pearl earrings. The only other time pearls were added to my closet, I bought a strand of fake ones for myself as a souvenir during my first trip to Nashville. I’d visited an art museum across the street from our hotel by myself, and had such a lovely time.
Pearls are created out of unpleasant circumstances. When a foreign substance enters the mouth of the oyster, it begins applying layers of nacre to the irritant as a way to protect itself. Out of something difficult comes something incredibly beautiful.
