GIFTS FROM THE GODS...Once upon a time from the Persian Gulf to the New World to the Pacific Rim, pearls were considered gifts from the gods, the only precious jewels that nature created. Early Conquistadors were at awe to see American Indians adorned with pearls strung on leather from the Caribbean to the Mississippi River. Today, still highly prized and adored, we at Lily Chartier Pearls, bring you beautiful, high luster freshwater, Tahitian and South Sea cultured pearls that we have hand drilled and knotted on fine leather with a contemporary twist.
