Abalone pearl pendant
What can you do when you live in France and you are looking for a beautiful abalone pearl to complete your natural pearl collection? And when abalone pearls are virtually unknown in this country?
You find yourself lucky that you are in the XXIst century! And thanks to Internet you can find all the information you need and talk to very nice people all over the world, willing to help. And especially to a certain gentleman living in New Zealand, familiar with that kind of pearl. And as it turns out, this gentleman has family living in London, only 2 hours 1/2 by train from Paris!
And so this is how you end up holding in your hand one of the most surprising pearls you've ever seen, with a beautiful lustre and a fantastic display of iridescent colours which makes it look like an opal of the sea!
Really, sometimes it's so good to live in modern days.
