When an oyster swallows a grain of sand it feels the discomfort, so it begins to ease the pain by applying a coat of nacre (pearl). It is during this healing process that it creates a beautiful pearl. It is rather ironic to think that something so beautiful can be created from so much discomfort. This is like life itself. It is easy to love in good times but it takes courage to love through the discomforts of our lives. The diamond represents the grain of sand and the pearl evokes an aura of courage, love and healing. It is this unique transformation that has given birth to Diamond in a Pearl, the Symbol of Love.
