The Dragon and Pearl
An iconic image inspired by Chinese culture, symbolising self-confidence courage and wisdom. In fact, the term "pearls of wisdom" may have originated from this source in conjunction with Buddhist culture.
Pearl, one of June's birthstones, is surrounded by myth and legend. One myth describes how raindrops swallowed by oysters turned into pearls. Another that they fell from the sky when dragons fought in the clouds. Yet another that they are the tears of the Gods themselves. The one we chose is an ancient Chinese tale of the Boy and the Dragon Pearl.
I hope you enjoyed this story. It is a combination of many different versions, so I apologise to any experts that disagree with my interpretation. :0)

The oldest pearl jewellery ever discovered was found in the sarcophagus of a Persian Princess who died in 520 BC.
