Well, I suppose if the formation of the Pearl was a beautiful accident of the sea, it's meaning changes when Kino finds it. It becomes not a beautiful accident but an object of desire and greed. Kino returning it to the cloudy depths of the sea returns the pearl to its former identity, until somebody else finds it.
