February is the shortest month and the only month with fewer than 30 days. The month has 28 days in common years or 29 days in leap years. The Roman month Februarius was named after the Latin term februum, which means purification, via the purification ritual Februa held on February 15 (full moon) in the old lunar Roman calendar. In Finnish, the month is called helmikuu, meaning “month of the pearl”; when snow melts on tree branches, it forms droplets, and as these freeze again, they are like pearls of ice. Send this month of “love” off by melting your own latent desires and prepare your world for the spring that awaits you!
The English word pearl comes from the French perle, originally from the Latin perna meaning leg, after the leg-shaped bivalve. The unique luster of pearls depends upon the reflection, refraction, and diffraction of light from the translucent layers. The thinner and more numerous the layers in the pearl, the finer the luster. The iridescence that pearls display is caused by the overlapping of successive layers, which breaks up light falling on the surface. In addition, pearls (especially cultured freshwater pearls) can be dyed yellow, green, blue, brown, pink, purple, or black. However, the very best pearls have a metallic mirror-like luster like the pearls at Bel Air Jewelry. Does the one you love possess a certain free-flowing siren of the deep type luster to her personality? Consider a large pearl wedding or engagement ring this fall, and take her deep into the ocean of your desired forever.
