Pearl (Pernulo) is one of the earliest jewelry used by humans. In the eyes of ancient people, pearls were the most beautiful treasure. Due to the lack and low level of gemstone processing technology at that time, pearls were the only gemstone variety that shone brightly without the need for polishing. Their natural and beautiful characteristics established the important position of pearls in jewelry products. This review explores the historical origin of pearls and the important position of pearls in culture through myths and legends, analyzes the natural formation process and geographical distribution of pearls, elaborates on the development process of the pearl industry, and looks forward to the sustainable development of pearls in the future based on the current situation, providing important support and guidance for better utilization and protection of pearl resources.
