NorCal Abalone Pearl 6/18/11
(Santa Clara, CA, USA)
84 carat natural Abalone pearl
To make this story more interesting, I have it all on video, from the dive to pulling the 84 carat pearl out of the abalone.
As I see listed on your site, I think I plan on taking it to Bonhams to get it valuated, and even set as a pendant.
Enjoy the videos :)
Hi everyone, this is my follow up story on my last posting " NorCal Abalone Pearl 6/18/11 on this site"
It took this long to dry out and have a jeweler fix it up.
Pendant setting is 14k X-1 white gold. Setting is a free form design, multi-piece lost wax casting, laser welded together.
I still haven't had it appraised yet, that is the next thing on my list of todo's.
