9.92 carats/13.5mm Quahog Pearl

This pearl is also round with more of a flat bottom. It has a distinct design on the top which we call a bulls eye. The color is a deep lavender and cream. It has high luster with no flaws. It is in its natural state and has not been cooked.

I am from the Eastern Shore of Virginia near the Chesapeake Bay. My father was a clammer most of his adult life, as were most of the men in my family. Years ago after my father passed away my step-mother gave me these three quahog pearls and said that my father found them while shucking chowder clams over the years, he kept them because the were flawless and beautiful. My father was a waterman for about 50 years, the fact that he only found three quahogs of gem quality attests to how rare these pearl actually are.

I too am from the Eastern Shore of Virginia, my father passed 2 months ago and he was a clam trawler captain. His father, also a waterman, had found a 14 mm round beauty and given it to his wife, my grandmother, when she passed, he gave it to my mother, who in turn has passed it to me.
My mother tried to have it appraised in the 70's, but was told by a well known Onancock jeweler that it was absolutely worthless!
