Legend has it that there once lived a Prince who sailed across dark waters in search for the most beautiful creature that pirates have claimed they've seen. The search went on for many moons. When the Prince was just about to give up, he caught a glimmer of shine at the corner of his eye. And there she was. The Prince couldn't believe his eyes! The creature had an upper body of a woman, and the lower body of a fish's tail. Her iridescent tail shimmered under the moonlight, her lustrous mane glowed. They locked eyes. It was love at first sight.
The Prince would visit her regularly, but soon he had to return to his ailing father and Kingdom for good. The mermaid was devastated. She swam to the depths of the sea, and wept her lonely heart. Her tears transformed into iridescent pearls that filled the seabed. Legend has it that wearing them would bring the wearer self-love and feminine beauty.
