I used to love pearls, and I was just considering wearing an old necklace I found today while going through my wardrobe looking for things to give away. I have faux pearls but this necklace was real, I got it for graduation a few years ago. This may seem silly but I really never thought of them as animal products. Like I knew they were far in the back of my head but consciously I just thought "oh, pearls..." But yup, they even have pearl farms for those not found in the wild. O.o
Why does everything have to come from an animal. Seriously humans, damn.
So anyway I assume others here don't wear them and aren't for them...no? Any information on how the animals are treated to get the pearls? I've honestly never heard any animal rights or veg organization talking about peArls
