Ocean Dewdrop, A Black Pearl & Diamond Pendant 7042-32DG-18kwg
A Symbol of True Love: Polynesian legend tells of the full moon bathing in the dark ocean. The moonbeams attracted oysters to the water’s surface, which was shimmering with heavenly dew. The drops of dew covered the oysters’ black pearls with colorful hues of blue, green, gold, and pink. Oro, a Polynesian God of Peace, then offered the black pearl to Princess Bora Bora, as a symbol of his love.
