When an oyster swallows a grain of sand, it eases the pain by applying a coat of nacre (pearl). It is from this healing process that a beautiful pearl is created. It’s rather ironic to think that something so beautiful can be created out of so much discomfort. Like life itself, it is easy to love during good times but it takes courage to love through the discomfort of our lives. The diamond represents the grain of sand and the pearl evokes an aura of courage, love and healing that is embedded deep within the soul. it is this unique transformation that has given birth to “Diamond in a Pearl”, the symbol of love.
Notice the different hand carved styles of these beautiful Galatea hand carved pearls, all are inspired by nature, for example the calla lily carved tahitian pearl earrings or the tulip carved pink fresh water pearl necklace.
