Well, in this Monastery we strive for wisdom, which seems to be more important than pe(a)rls or even rubies.

Job 28:19
No mention shall be made of coral, or of pearls:
for the price of wisdom is above rubies.

And of course pe(a)rls should not be given to the swines. I guess that means that only the wise should have them. It is clear pe(a)rls have a lot to do with beauty and wisdom and the ultimate that can be obtained.

Matthew
7:6
Give not that which is holy unto the dogs, neither cast ye your pearls before swine,
lest they trample them under their feet, and turn again and rend you.
13:45
Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls:
13:46
Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.

I don't like the part where women are denied (or restricted in the way they may approach) the beauty and wisdom of pe(a)rls...

Timothy
2:9
In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel, with shamefacedness and sobriety;
not with broided hair, or gold, or pearls, or costly array;
2:10
But (which becometh women professing godliness) with good works.
2:11
Let the woman learn in silence with all subjection.

The rest of the bible talks in more incomprehensible ways about our precious. I keep wondering... did Larry go back in time and have some pot and write some strange things? So many funny things in the bible.
