Quahog Pearl Found in Seattle

Not too big, but still a good story

Not too big, but still a good story

The only thing rare about my story is that I live in Seattle. Apparently this is usually an East coast thing.


Anyway, I bought a couple pounds of clams for my girlfriend and I, and while I was eating one, I bit down on something hard. I finally got it out of my mouth, and after finishing my meal, I checked out some stuff on the web.

It's pretty small, so I don't think it would bring much money, so I'm planning on making it into a ring or necklace for my girlfriend's birthday in October.

Thanks for all the info!

Hi Mike,

Even if your quahog pearl is small....it's pretty special to find a natural pearl! And, yours appears to have a deep purple color, which makes it more desirable.

I think making it into a ring or necklace for your girlfriend's birthday is a super idea.

Yes, most of these are found on the East coast...so this puts Seattle on the "quahog pearl map" now too.

Thanks for sharing your photo and story with all of us.
