MOST RECENT

Zabeel: Diving Weight. This heavy weight, known as a Heyr, was tied to a rope and affixed to the diver's body. This helped to weigh the diver down and lower him to the bottom of the sea.

الزَّبِيل: ثقل الغوص. كان يُربط هذا الوزن الثقيل، المعروف باسم هير، بحبل ويُثبّت في جسم الغواص. وساعد ذلك في إضافة ثقل على وزن الغواص وسهولة النزول إلى قاع البحر.

I find the history of pearls to be quite amazing. A friend of mine has been travelling the south of India and she had my interest of pearls in mind when she took this photo of these young princes. They are princes Azam Jah and Muazzam Jah, sons of Mir Osman Ali Khan. The photo/portrait was done in 1911. At a similar point in time, I suspect you would not find a picture of young English princes wearing so many pearls! #historyofpearls #history #pearls #finejewelry #finejewelry #nzdesigner #indianprinces #indianjewelry #englishprince #princes #pearljewelry #boutiquejewelry

Did you know that at one time, #pearls were the most expensive #jewels in the world? They brought vast riches to the #persiangulf way before the discovery of oil. #india and #srilanka revelled in them. At their height the #roman #general #vitellius went to war by selling one of his mother’s #pearlearrings such were their power. #cleopatra reportedly crushed a pearl and drank it in a glass of wine, boasting that she had just hosted the most expensive dinner party of all time. So this #christmas I may bin the onesie and relax @gucci style in a pearl skull cap, tracksuit and reading glasses. History never fails to inspire me. #guccicruise18 #alessandromichele #pearlparty #pearllove #historyofpearls #pearladdict #pearllover #fashionpearl #jewelry #luxuryaccessories #luxurylifestyle #luxurystyle #pearltrends

#FlashbackFriday to November 15, 2017 when The Mannequins hosted celebrated jewelry designer and pearl expert, @hilarybeanejewelry, for the “Art of the Pearl” presentation. Hilary gave a lecture on the history of pearls, how pearls are cultivated, formed and sourced, the difference between natural and cultivated pearls, and insight into which type of pearls are best to invest in. Each Mannequin walked away with a tiny vial of complementary good-luck pearls for their handbag!

おはようございます。
今日はちょっと遊んで見ました!

かんざし、ピアス、指輪…
和珠が江戸時代に楽しまれたらこんな感じだったかな♬

驚くことに江戸時代の真珠は
装飾品より薬として需要がありました。
心を穏やかにし、お肌にキメと潤いを与え、
視力を向上+解毒作用もあると言われていたそうです。

美容オタク(笑)のクレオパトラも
真珠を酢に溶かして飲んでいたようですよ!
「美とパール」は古来よりとても近い存在なんです♡

I used a bit of creativity today!! If people in Edo period (1603-1868) wore Wadama accessories, it'd be like this! But surprisingly, actual Edo people consumed pearls as medicine rather than accessories. They believed pearls give you better eyesight, smoother skin, and detoxification. It's well known that Cleopatra, the beauty expert, took pearls with vinegar. Pearls and beauty are inseparable from ancient time. :) #和珠 #伊勢志摩 #真珠 #国産真珠 #パール #浮世絵 #江戸時代 #真珠の歴史 #かんざし #ピアス #指輪 #美 #wadama #iseshima #mie #japan #pearls #madeinjapan #edoperiod #ukiyoe #historyofpearls #history #beauty

A pearl earring from Ancient Rome. The rise of the Silk Road in the 300s BC encouraged rulers to send thousands of poor divers down to the bottom of the ocean to find pearls to sell. Kings in Sri Lanka (an island south-east of India) got rich selling pearls. Rich people wore pearls in China and Japan, in the Persian Empire, in Ptolemaic Egypt (Cleopatra wore them), and the Roman Empire. Pearls were so expensive that Roman glass workers made fake pearls out of glass-coated silver. About 500 AD, Chinese manufacturers started to put tiny Buddhas inside freshwater mussel shells so they would get coated with pearl, too.
