It is proving hard to explore where and when exactly the origins of the 'Pearls for Tears' superstition originated from, in our research though we have come to find quite the opposite according to ancient beliefs and it would appear to be more of an old wives tale passed down through the generations.
'This is one of those wedding myths with both bad luck and good luck meanings. The ominous version of this myth holds that pearls represent future tears; thus wearing them will bring many tears and heartache in the marriage. The luckier version of this implies that the pearls take the place of the bride's real tears, thus she'll have a happy, tear-free wedding.' http://www.yourwedding101.com/wedding-basics/wedding-myths
So basically when it comes down to it, it is personal preference and belief that matters most, folklore would indicate good rather than bad luck. But if you're superstitious better not risk it !
'Pearls symbolize wisdom acquired through experience. They are believed to attract wealth and luck as well as offer protection. Known for their calming effect, pearls can balance one's karma, strengthen relationships, and keep children safe. The pearl is also said to symbolize the purity, generosity, integrity, and loyalty of its wearer.'
