The obligatory presence of pearls in wedding dresses of brides in many countries of the world is also associated with this symbolism. In ancient Greece, there was even a custom to symbolically tie newlyweds with a pearl necklace, recalling marital fidelity.
At the same time, signs say that pearls are a "stone of tears", and to receive it as a gift is a sign of lamentation and disappointment. However, these signs mainly relate to dreams: it is in a dream to give, find or receive pearls - to tears.
