Pearls had always been a wearable accessory that give a calming effect to its wearer due to the aesthetic of the white shades which symbolizes purity, its round shape that shows balance and its lustrous polished beauty, all of which came from the depths of the mysterious waters. Pearls which once need to be collected from a living shelled mollusks from the ocean, has now become a convenient commodity to be easily farmed in freshwater and harvest to make up the majority of those currently sold. The diverse group of saltwater and freshwater mollusks which include oysters, mussels, clams, conchs and gastropods all produce pearls, although only those mollusks that have shells lined with nacre, example oysters, produce pearls used in the jewelry industry.
