“Parable of the Pearl of Great Price” Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man seeking goodly pearls: Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had and bought it. From Matthew 13:45, 46.
Because it is given unto you to know the mysteries of the kingdom of heaven, but to them it is not given. For whosoever hath not, from him shall be taken away even that he hath. There speak I to them in parables: because they seeing see not; and hearing not, neither do they understand. From The Lost Gospel of Jesus by Gene Savoy \

Moslms often have recourse to the pearl as a symbol of Heaven. And the necklace stands for the unifying of diversity in Dictionary of symbols. “When painting it I was thinking of the Parable of the Kingdom of Heaven, & Rosary Prayer Beeds. And the different colors of pearls for children Red, Yellow, Black and White, they are precious in his sight.”
