Random information on the term “PEARL”:
Pearl is a primarily feminine given name derived from the English word pearl, a hard, roundish object produced within the soft tissue of a living, shelled mollusk. Pearls are commonly used in jewelry-making. The pearl is the birthstone for the month of June. Pearls have been associated with innocence and modesty. Because it comes from the sea, it also has associations with the moon and with water. Pearls are also traditionally considered appropriate jewelry for debutantes and brides.
Pearl came into popular use along with other gemstone names during the late Victorian Era. It may also have been inspired by the name Margaret, which means “pearl.” In Nathaniel Hawthorne’s 1850 novel The Scarlet Letter, heroine Hester Prynne names her illegitimate daughter Pearl because the child is “of great price, purchased with all she had, her mother’s only treasure.” The passage refers to the Parable of the Pearl in the New Testament. The gates to Heaven are also commonly pictured as made of pearl.
