Quahog pearl fround on Honeymoon 1977
On our honeymoon, 38 years ago, my husband and I were out to dinner at Tom's Clam Cove, Liverpool, NY. My husband ordered clams and when he bit into one, there was a pearl in it. At the time, we didn't realize what it was, but thought it was pretty so I put it in my jewelry box and it's been there ever since. I was told it wasn't worth anything because it was an unfinished pearl, but kept it anyway.
