Pearl Events

Pearls have always been associated with weddings, as a symbol of purity, but they are also matched with a number of birthdays, anniversaries and birth months and pearls make a great gift for any of these occasions. Here is a brief rundown of major pearl events.

Wedding pearl jewellery

Pearls have long been associated with weddings as a symbol of purity and innocence, and pearl wedding jewellery is often given as a gift to the bride from the groom or from her parents or the parents of the groom. In some families, a treasure pearl heirloom such as a pearl wedding necklace is loaned or gifted to the bride for the big day.

Ancient Greeks thought that pearl bridal jewellery brought contentment and prosperity and would give the bride a tear-free, or happy, marriage. In Hindu legend, the god Krishna, is said to have dived to the bottom of the ocean to fetch a pearl for his daughter on her wedding day.

Pearl anniversaries

Pearls are most famously associated with a 30th wedding anniversary, which is also known as a Pearl Wedding Anniversary. Freshwater pearls are also given for a first wedding anniversary gift and a twelfth wedding anniversary gift.
