Good Day Sir/Mam


I am Katherine and I lived in southernmost part of Mindanao, Philippines.I would like to seek professional advice from you regarding the rare nautilus pearl. I have one in my possession right now and I would like you to confirm or take a look at this photos if this is truly a nautilus pearl. I know Nautilus Pearl are rare, and I was searching in the internet and the only thing I've found are more of a descriptions and details and no definite pictures. Arguments are mostly in the net regarding the true existence of Nautilus Pearl.

The one that I have a "Nautilus Pearl" weighs 5.7 grams and a size of 15x17mm.I am no expert about pearls, hoping you can enlighten me if it is a True "Nautilus Pearl" or simply a "Fake" Pearl.

You might ask me how did I get it, well it started this way.

A local pearl buyer and a friend of mine ask my help to post this in the internet. And luckily I have found your website. The said Nautilus Pearl has been found by a local diver in the depth of the ocean inside a nautilus shell. And sell it to his buyer.

I am attaching a photos of the said nautilus pearl. I hope you can spare time and help me to confirm this.

Thank you very much.

Ones on right
by: Kari

Thanks Andy for your expert opinion.

I do want to add on the last photo with all the pearls, the six pearls on the right do look like natural tridacna pearls.

Not Nautilus
by: Andy

Hi
Just noticed this article and thought I would chime in.
Kari is correct, the top 2 pinkish pearls appear to be cultured Chinese Freshwater.
The rest of your pearls are obviously Cultured, South Sea pearls of Australian origin, which explains the rings and belly buttons.
I think that even your supposed "Nautilus" also may be just another deformed Australian South Sea pearl.
There are some known examples of Nautilus and one actually comes from the Philippines, but your pearl is nothing like them.
Be careful shopping for pearls in the Philippines. They are now trying to pass imitation Natural pearls, as well as, trying to sell Chinese freshwater or cheaper Australian South Sea pearls as the most sought after Philippine South Sea pearl.

Pearl identification
by: Kari

Hi Katherine,

It is nearly impossible to identify a pearl accurately from a photo alone. For identification you'd have to take it to a pearl lab.

Tell your diver friends to save the shells that they find pearl in...that way it will be easy to identify the type of pearls.

Some of the pearls in your group photo look like cultured pearls....but again, a photo is not enough to go by when identifying pearls.

Thanks for sharing.
