WHY 'BLACK PEARL' ?
Pearls are frequently used as a symbol of resilience and transformation from adversity,
as pearls are formed from a process where the shellfish ends up creating a product of great value by engaging a defense mechanism (nacre) to fight off an irritant in the shell.
They are also unique in that they are the only gemstone that is created inside a living being.
Black pearls in particular have additional association with healing properties in various cultures due to their rarity,
and sometimes carry mythology and symbolism associated with grief and sadness,
healing and resilience, protection from negative energy, love, wisdom, knowledge, and abundance.
