Pearls don’t just happen. They form through an amazing process when an irritant, a foreign body like a grain of sand, fishbone or shell fragment, works its way into the soft tissue of an oyster, clam or mussel. The mollusks, in a defense mechanism, produce special secretions to coat the irritant. Those layers of coatings become the pearls, the only “jewels” produced by living animals. Different types of mollusks can produce different pearls in terms of color, size and shape.
