Pearls, we are told, form as a result of a sand particle finding its way inside an oyster’s protective shell. Over time the oyster forms a crusty substance around the offending intruder that ultimately grows into a pearl. Diamonds are one of the most beautiful crystals that can grace a ring finger. Yet their formation requires extreme heat, and their final beauty is not revealed until careful chiseling and chipping of the surfaces reveal the facets that make up the final unparalleled product that was hidden within. Life’s storms that we experience are like the seeds of pearls and the stresses required to form diamonds. First seen as destructive influences, they can become sources of great beauty and added value.
