Conch Pearls & Gold -- Fit for Royalty

When Ellon Ebanks first thought of presenting a special gift to Prince William and Princess Catherine in celebration of their marriage, it did not enter his mind that his search for the rare pink conch pearl would take him 444 miles off Grand Cayman.

So intent on giving a gift symbolic of the Cayman people, Mr. Ebanks’ travels took him all the way to Honduras and back to acquire the rare pearls he needed to complete his masterpiece - a pendant made from a 24 carat gold coin inlaid in an 18 carat gold band with four dangling pink pearls.

To create the pendant, Mr. Ebanks purchased the coin from Miquel Powery and set to work looking for the pearls, which he said had to be the correct size, colour and shape.

“At one point I thought I would never complete the piece because I could not locate the pearls,” he said.
