The Ancient Greeks proclaimed pearls to be the tears of joy shed by the Goddess of love Aphrodite. The ancient Japanese believed pearls were created out of the joyous tears of mermaids, nymphs and angels.

Legend has it that the ancient Queen Cleopatra dissolved a pearl from one of her earrings in a glass of wine and drank it to show her lover Mark Antony that she could consume the riches of an entire population in just one sip.
