8-9mm Purple Pearl

by Sal

About 20 years ago i was cooking pasta clams when I bit into a stone.


WHEN I LOOKED AT THE STONE I REALIZED IT WAS A PEARL.

I was amazed to see this pearl--a purple pearl about 8-9mm.

Can anyone tell me if it is worth anything?

Current Market Value for your Pearl
by: Kari

Hi,

I talked with a fellow today who pays about $200/carat for nice purple or lavender Quahog pearls. For similar, but white clam pearls the price is $50-$90/carat.

These natural pearls are most often sold by weight and other characteristics also count, like shape, condition, color, size.

There are maybe other markets as well, but that is at last one practical price point to consider, if you're thinking about selling your pearl.

Your local jeweler may be able to help you out with finding your pearl's carat weight.
