Pearls: Piety, Poetry and Pre-Raphaelites The V and A Blog

I’ve not written anything for a month. There’s a good reason for that. I really have not written anything. because a month ago I managed to break my arm – neck of humerus in fact – so my arm has been pretty much out of action.

I’ve broken silence today because browsed up this amazing blog, written on the Victoria and Albert Museum website, called

Pearls: Piety, Poetry and Pre-Raphaelites.

It’s a must read (all three parts) for any pearl lover who wants to know how pearls have been seen and portrayed through history

In fact the whole museum website is worth a poke around (search ‘pearls’ as I did)
