The Significance of 30 and the Pearl

The Significance of 30 and the Pearl

Posted by The Wish Pearl on 2019 Apr 16th

The pearl is one of the most desirable gems in the world, but did you know that the traditional gift for 30 is represented by this lovely treasure?

If you are celebrating something having to do with the number 30, and you need a gift, you will want to give a pearl. You can’t go wrong with pearls, ever, and you certainly cannot go wrong with a gift from The Wish Pearl.

You might wish to give your loved one pearl earrings for her 30th birthday. A 30th anniversary of any kind is a really special event, such as a 30 year marriage, an adoption, the founding of a company, or of 30 years in the same career or job. You could give a beautiful pearl keepsake to a mother (or a grandmother) whose child was born on the 30th of the month.

There might be someone actually born on the 30th of the month who would enjoy a pearl pendant necklace--a friend, or maybe its you who deserves something fun as well as beautiful, such as a pearl cage pendant. When you buy from The Wish Pearl, you can choose an oyster containing a pearl, making it even more fun for the recipient, young, old, or right in the middle.

It was in the 1930s that fashion designer Coco Chanel showed us how to wear pearls in modern times.

"I gave women a sense of freedom," Chanel said. “Pearls are definitely one of a girl’s best friends; they are easy to wear and hold a special place in every jewelry lovers’ heart.”

Speaking of the years ending in 30, like in Chanel’s world, you might want to celebrate the birthday of The French Revolution, which began in 1830. Does she like animals? Poetry? Or maybe you are Irish? Well, in 1830, the Zoological Society of Ireland was established, and the poet, Emily Dickinson, was born that same year. There is something for everyone here.

Even more famous people were born or celebrated events ending in 30, not the least of which were the birthdays of at least five astronauts born in 1930, including Neil Armstrong and Buzz Aldrin, who landed on the Moon. It would be well worth honoring these heroes’ birthdays by giving a gift of a star pendant or bandana to an astronomy buff. Other notables born in 1930 include the legend, Ray Charles, who might inspire a musical note necklace as a gift. Who could resist a gift inspired by Dirty Harry, Clint Eastwood, or the original 007, Sean Connery, both born in 1930? Make her day!

You will make OUR day as you get creative with our product line, particularly with our pearls, be they the original white to be discovered in our pearl in oyster kit, or by utilizing our colored pearls. We at The Wish Pearl love sharing our fun with you and we’re anxious to hear about what memory you create based on the significance of 30 and the pearl.
