Pearls have been thought of as feminine gems throughout history and among the many symbolic meanings femininity has always been in first place when it comes to these gems. Pearl is also the symbol of fertility, purity, determination, perfection, and romance. Pearls were also worn by men in ancient Rome and they were associated with power, wisdom, health, and happiness. Pearls have a direct association with fertility – as it is a mystery for the oyster to contain a pearl in its shell, a woman's womb and giving birth to a human being can also be seen as mysteries. Even many icons depict an open pearl shell. Due to the fact that pearls are formed inside of a living organism, they are thought of as "living" gems. Pearls are formed inside of a living creature: They grow inside the shell and enter the world as humans do.
Even during ancient times, pearls were recommended to women who had the wish to become pregnant.
