largest scallop pearl I have ever heard of.
In 2003, my now ex-husband was scallop fishing off the coast of Portland,Maine when he discovered a scallop pearl of extraordinary size. When he brought it home, I immediately placed it in the care of the Jewelry designers at Day's Jewelers in Brunswick who fashioned a gold "basket" around the pearl so that I can wear it as a pendant without using screws, posts, or adhesive. The pearl is a perfect 10mm round and looks very much like the full moon. There appears to be a layer beneath the smooth surface that showcase the swirls and slight color variations that mimic the craters of the moon. It is an exceptional pearl and I will post a picture of it as soon as I can.
