Caption: Strands of pearls of various sizes and colors. Pearls are smooth lustrous objects made by molluscs to encapsulate and protect themselves from irritant particles. Many species create pearls, and humans have learned how to stimulate these animals to form pearls (cultured pearls) around seed objects inserted in their soft tissues. Pearls have been highly prized as gems for millennia, and are available in a broad range of colors and sizes.
