Pearls are known for their beauty as well as value, going way back in history and often were the study of many writers. Here are a few of my favorite quotes about pearls.
While working on this post about pearls, I learned some things that I was not aware of. Pearls, their rarity, and value go way back in our human history. The Bible at Matthew 13: 45-46 talks about a traveling merchant seeking fine pearls. When he finds one pearl of great value, he sells everything he had to buy that pearl.
Jackie Kennedy former first lady of the United States loved her pearls and had them on in just about every photograph. I love her quote about pearls always being appropriate.
Since no two pearls are exactly alike, each one has its own uniqueness or story to tell, hence, it's own autobiography. “All art is autobiographical; the pearl is the oyster’s autobiography.” – Frederico Fellini
Vincent Van Gogh suffered from depression and lived a dark life but his quote shows that there is some light in life, referencing the pearl.
And then, of course, there is Coco Chanel, a famous French designer who was also enamored with pearls. “A woman needs ropes and ropes of pearls.” – Coco Chanel --and-- “Why wear one string when you can wear two?” – Coco Chanel
