NO GRIT, NO PEARL.
Pearls come in many shapes, sizes, and colors, but they all have one thing in common: Every pearl exists because of grit. Every pearl is the result of an oyster or clam transforming something difficult, painful or challenging into a thing of incredible beauty.
It starts when a piece of grit, like sand, enters an oyster or clam, uninvited. And rather than giving up, or living with constant pain, the oyster layers fluid over the grit that hardens, layer after layer, day by day, until the grit is transformed into a beautiful, lustrous pearl.
