    This would be an ok idea but I feel like adding oysters or clams would kind of have to go along with this. Also, maybe you could sell the pearls to villagers. But yeah good idea.

    I think you should be able to find pearls in caves that are underwater.  They are very rare but they emit a lot of light.

    Pearls would be an interesting thing to include, but what would they DO?  Or would they just be a decorative underwater item?

    A long time ago I purposed them as a valute adopted by mermaids, mobs you can find near ravines which will trade you treasure maps. This was my concept, Mojang added directly treasure maps😅

    I love the idea of something as rare, graceful and beautiful as pearls being in the game, however, what exactly would their use be?

    Pearls are a good idea, they could be used in sea temples to unlock doors like In the good old days of DTL, or is that just me?

    I think Birthstone Gems should come out the same update as the Pearls

    Here's what I would suggest:
    Giant clam block can be found the deep ocean, ocean monument and/or underwater caves.
    Giant Clam block opens and closes like chest, works like an item frame showing an item in its tongue if opened. Think of it as an item frame but a block. If redstone power is applied it will remain open. Comparator will give output signal if an item is in the Giant Clam Block. Items can be rotated. World generated loot table that consist of ender pearl, Heart of the Sea or nothing.
    Make nautilus shell a block.
    Remove Heart of the Sea in buried treasure loot table.

    Maybe "Mob A" could make a come-back. Or at least have the clams try to snap you when you are stealing their pearls.

    Mhm ' Is it just me, or did the Aquatic update need Pearls? ' Or do you mean ' Is it just me but the Aquatic update needs Sirens.'

    Yeah, it's you. We don't need them, they would be a useless item.

    anjelocarreon12492 made a great suggestion for how pearls/clams could be implemented so that they have an interesting use. I think it might be cool if the clam could also 'catch' you like a spiders web if you are in it when it closes.

    I think perhaps sirens/mermaids need a separate suggestion brooklyncannon06 . Having two different suggestions here is confusing. I would be interested to hear what effect they might have on the game. Do they drop anything? How does their attack work? Does the player become charmed like in the myth?

    I am not writing everything go to my account and look at the post I made about Sirens (Thank you) Also I do not know what they drop, I am saying the "Is it me, or did the Aquatic Update need pearls?" Needs more detail He/she doesn't say where will they spawn and doesn't say what do. Also the Sirens Lure Players with their Enchanting voice.

    WAIT, how about a pearl in the middle and 4 chorus fruit around it!

    I have an idea for this. A new Wandering Trader type can be added called a Treasure Hunter. Treasure Hunters only trade valuable items like Diamonds, Emeralds, Nether Quartz, Heart of the Sea, Ender Pearls, and Nether Star at a very high price for Pearls and vice versa, basically late game. Pearls can be obtained by harvesting from new mobs like Oysters and Giant Clams.

    These 2 mobs spawn rarely deep in the ocean biomes (probably on warm ocean). Giant Clams yield more pearls than oysters. You can harvest the pearls by right clicking on an open clam or oyster. Right-clicking or attacking the closed one resets its opening timer. I'd also suggest not being able to breed these but can be collected and moved. For oysters, water bucket to make it into a Bucket of Oyster. For Giant Clam, I don't know how.

    Just a thought of the Trades
    1 Pearl > 4 Nether Quartz
    12 Nether Quartz > 2 Pearls
    24 Pearls > 2 Emeralds
    48 Pearls > 2 Ender Pearls
    64 Pearls & 4 Emerald > 1 Diamond
    64 Pearls & 24 Emeralds > 1 Heart of the Sea (Cannot get this trade until the player gets Heart of the Sea first)
    64 Pearls & 48 Emeralds > 1 Nether Star (Cannot get this trade until the player gets the Nether Star first)

    Yes pearls could come from a oyster which could give a meat source as well if entity, and if combined with chorus fruit could create ender pearl

    This is an ok idea. But Mojang will have to  add clams or shellfishes too.

    You could crush the pearls into blocks. They could be a really cool smooth marble pattern. Something to compete with quartz block.
