Thank you for the photo. What a lovely quahog pearl. From the photo it looks very round, very purple, very large..wow! 12.2mm, right?

That's a family treasure for sure!

Any chance of seeing a photo? It's neat that a pearl would be treasured for 100 years as a family heirloom. I think that's what natural pearls are all about....treasured heirlooms.
