Natural pearls were the oldest gems known to mankind. Long before man discovered the diamond and other precious stones, pearls were considered to be the first precious gem. The Vedas of India, the Bible and the Quran make several reference of pearls as objects of adoration and worship. The natural pearls of the Gulf of Mannar and the Persian Gulf enjoyed very good reputation in the world trade from the time immemorial. The Gulf of Mannar pearls are famous throughout the world as 'Orient Pearls'.
