The Pearl is the Oyster's Autobiography

Since reading Buried Treasure: Travels Through the Jewel Box by Victoria Finlay (FYI, one of the most interesting books about gemstones I’ve ever read) I find myself having a complicated love/hate relationship with pearls. On one hand I find it, ethically, very hard to justify wearing them. But one the other hand…I do think they look amazing.
