Regular price $188.00
Generally, black pearls have been symbols of wealth and prosperity because of their rarity and incredible value. Ancient Chinese mythology imagined black pearls formed within the heads of dragons and considered the black pearl a symbol of wisdom.

When the wife of a railroad magnate fell in love with one of Cartier’s pearl necklaces, Pierre Cartier made her an extraordinary offer. He would give her the natural pearl necklace (valued at $1 million) plus $100 in exchange for her Italian-Renaissance inspired home on New York City’s Fifth Avenue. She agreed, and the rest is history. Cartier transformed the mansion into one of the world’s most luxurious retail experiences. Today, Cartier’s Fifth Avenue Mansion is the company’s largest store in the world.
