Mike B Found a Quahog Pearl

by Michael Bernard

Like Pam V I to found a pruple pearl in a Quahog over this 4th of July 2008. I was cleaning some quahogs for stuffing and found what look to be a purple and white marble. I cleaned it off and decided to hold on to it. I found the pearl while visiting my uncle in Rhode Island. If you have any information as to where I would be able to take it and have it apraised that would be wonderful

Pearl appraiser

Hi Mike,

Wow....a very good 4th for you too. I am giving you the same info I posted to Pam. Also, check her comments as Mandy is wanting to purchase a quahog pearl and would like to see some photos.

To send photos please contact me at karipearls(at)gmail(dot)com and send photos there.

To answer your question. There are few people qualified to appraise natural pearls.

I suggest Gina Latendresse, who is in Nashville, Tennessee.

Gina says this:

I only give appraisals
once I have physically seen the pearl or pearls. I offer a verbal for $50
or written for $200. Shipping and insurance are added after the appraisal
amount is discussed and the client wants it insured or shipped a certain
way. Also, if the pearl is not worth the $50 appraisal. I simply call the client
and let them know we are shipping their pearl back with no charge, but they
are responsible for the shipping and if they request insurance they will be
responsible for those charges as well.

Gina's Phone 615-298-4111

Gina is a busy lady who travels quite often, so please be patient with any requests.
