    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?

    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.

    I think you can use pearls and string to create neclace

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

    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.

    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.

    Add clams the size of blocks. They could be in the Deep parts of the Ocean so you gotta venture deep for these valuable pearls

    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?

    Paul Mario Ubalde (i don’t know how to tag!) I really like your idea about the Treasure Hunter. I also think though that pearls should be used for something aquatic related. For example, someone said that pearls should be craftable into ender pearls, but the pearl is aquatic and maybe should be craftable to Heart of the Seas instead.

    Pearls should glow, be tradeable with fishing villagers, have the same rarity as the totem of undying, found in sunken ships or be found from clams that could attack you ,for example, biting the player.

    The pearls could be the same item as the Heart of the Sea.

    Maybe you can craft pearl bracelets that give you water breathing when held

    So here's an idea of what they could be used for: 
    Make them throw-able like an Ender Pearl, but most blocks if hit will do nothing except drop the pearl so you can pick it back up again. 
    If it hits a Target Block though, teleport the player like an Ender Pearl. 

    This would be useful as a more common version of the Ender Pearl, and it would be useful to the dungeon-builders out there who want a teleportation mechanic, but only want it to be used in certain ways so it doesn't break the challenge of the rest of the dungeon. Since it only works on Target Blocks, that also means a redstone contraption could be activated upon landing. 

    It would also be a neat easter egg as most players would throw the Pearl once and think it does nothing.

    Pearls are made when sand or parasites get caught in a clams mouth. To soothe themselves from the pain, they wrap the aggressor in their saliva which eventually becomes a pearl.

    While I don't know their use, putting items like sand, gravel, dirt, rotten flesh, etc, into clams could make them turn it into pearls, like a sort of farm. The items could still be encased inside.

    Maybe the pearls can be use to make new furniture blocks like quartz did but shinier.
