What were you eating?

Hi John,

The best way to know what kind of pearl you have is to remember what type of mollusk you were eating for dinner. Was it a Little Neck or Cherrystone clam? Then you have a quahog pearl. Was it an oyster? They you have an edible oyster pearl. Quahog pearl have value depending upon several factors. Edible oyster pearls as a general rule are keepsake items and have little value.

Congrats on finding a pearl! Glad you appreciate it and will enjoy it.

God bless, Kari
