THE HISTORY OF BRIDES AND PEARLS 

Pearls and brides have gone together since well … practically forever!

The ancient Greeks believed that pearls were tears shed by Aphrodite, the goddess of Love. It is no surprise then that the Greeks then began giving brides pearls on their wedding day to prevent tears, and to increase the chances of a successful marriage.

For the Greeks, pearls were often either worn woven into the traditional Stefana, or wedding crown, or as edging on the bridal veil.

The Romans especially revered pearls, so much so that Julius Cesar declared that pearls could only be worn by royalty. The tradition of wearing a wedding veil originated in Rome; Romans believed that the veil would shield the bride from evil spirits and bad luck before her nuptials. It is not a stretch to imagine bridal veils for high society brides could be edged in precious pearls, with gorgeous gold and pearl earrings to match.
