Pearls in portraits

July 12, 2019

Since ancient times, pearls were perceived as a symbol of purity. Many monarchs and nobles preferred pearl jewelry on their portraits. In addition to the symbol of purity, pearls also served as a symbol of wealth. It is very difficult to collect a large number of natural pearls. Gathering pearls cost many people their lives. Therefore, pearls are also a symbol of great power over people. Pearls are the only gem that can attract their attention due to their ability to reflect colors and round shape.

On many portraits of the ladies' necks are surrounded by long strings of pearls, symbolising the power and wealth of their families.
