Between 2007 and 2011, Treasures of Australia has celebrated five glittering prizes found in Australia: Sapphires, Opals, Diamonds, Gold, and Pearls. The final release in this series features the pearl.
Oysters create natural pearls by depositing layers of nacre over a grain of sand or other intruder that settles inside the shell. Cultured pearls develop around a bead implanted by human hand.
Since ancient times, the pearl has been a symbol of purity and femininity. It is the oldest known gem, and for centuries, it was considered the most valuable. The pearl is the birthstone for those born in June.

This beautifully unique release is housed within an official presentation case with a jarrah timber lid, set inside a brightly coloured outer box along with a numbered Certificate of Authenticity.
