The will of men…

It has always been the will of mankind to create their own destiny and when it comes to pearls we are no different. Since antiquity several different methods have been devised to obtain pearls at will. 

The Chinese had thought to place lead figurines of Buddha inside the shells, some thought to artificially insert a grain of sand in the mollusc and others to pierce a hole in the shell so as to inject resin inside so as to provoke the creation of a pearl. 

Some of these experiments were successful and other less so but it was only at the beginning of the 20th century that the Japanese were able to successfully create the first cultured pearls by using the research undertaken by Linne.

The first ever cultured pearls were created in Japan at the beginning of the XX century, there appearance on the market allowed pearls to become much more accessible.
