What is this quahog pearl worth?

IT HAS A TWO TONE COLOR, gray blueish AND WHITE!


Kari's note: I notice that your quahog pearl has a crack. Unfortunately, cracks greatly reduce the value of quahog pearls.

quahog pearl values
by: Kari

Hello, Quahog values vary greatly from very little to very much. One lab that appraises quite a few quahog pearls said that nice ones can be appraised at $600-800/carat. I've seen them sell for much higher than that at auctions as well.

Quahogs with strong violet color demand the highest prices. A round lighter colored "bull's eye" generally lowers the value.

I do see a crack in your white quahog pearl. Unfortunately, cracks greatly diminish the value of pearls. It would probably be best as a keepsake in that case.
