Pearls in all their elegant brilliance and beauty have caught the eye of the rich and powerful for thousands of years.
Hollywood legend Elizabeth Taylor’s jewelry collection featured the natural gem in various forms, including her famous La Peregrina pearl necklace, which sold for a staggering $11.8 million at auction in 2011.
That remains the largest amount ever paid for pearls at auction.
Luckily, Members won’t need to pay such eye-watering sums when Sanwa Pearl returns to the Club for one of its regular sales.
