33 Carat Natural Round Pearl Up for Auction


British auction house Woolley & Wallis has denied media reports that it’s about to sell the world’s largest natural pearl—but notes that the specimen it’s selling is still pretty impressive, and likely to fetch more than $400,000.

The pearl in question measures 16.5 mm by 17.4 mm, weighs 33.15 cts., and is a natural saltwater pearl.

“It’s incorrect to say that it’s the biggest natural pearl in the world,” says jewelry department head Jonathan Edwards. “There are probably a couple of bigger pearls in existence. But it is one of the—if not the—largest natural pearls to come up for auction.”

He says his research hasn’t uncovered a larger natural one sold in the last 50 years.
