The world's biggest pearl used in a piece of jewelry

I love looking at jewelry wherever I may find them. Often, churches are a great source for beautiful and ostentatious jewelry. Just look at this crown. And if the fact that it is made entirely of 18 carat gold, is not enough bling, just look at all the rubies, emeralds and sapphires that have been added to it. And the highlight of this crown? Its the pearl carved into the form of the baby Jesus. Its the world’s biggest pearl ever used in a piece of jewelry! Such lavishness is of course not meant for a mere mortal, no matter how high his rank. No, this crown is reserved only for the Mary, the mother of God. Us mortals can be content with simply admiring it from behind its glass case in the magnificent Cathedral of Seville.
