Shucking Abalone

Shucking Abalone

I've been diving for abalone off the California coast since I was a teenager and never found a pearl. A dive buddy once got a beautiful black pearl from the gut, where I've always searched as well. Last summer I pulled an abalone and after shucking it found a cluster of 3 pearls growing together on the inside of the shell. I still have them sitting in a dish, but I'm thinking of having all 3 made into a ring for my wife. They aren't the most beautiful but the size is decent, about 0.2"-0.25" in diameter.

I have several nice pearls that can add some color to your wife's ring. Maybe a matching earring set. They have been sitting in my safe for 10 yrs. I'll make you a deal you may not be able to refuse. $100. 916#220#9059 Sacramento .

Check out 2 of my ab pearls on This site. " Unusual flat " and " Only one on earth" titles.

Dive safe,. Then remember..your weight belt has no family. Drop it if your in trouble.

Hi Steve,

I'm glad you finally found a pearl and not just one but three! A ring sounds perfect. Even if they aren't the most beautiful they are natural pearls which makes them super special. They also look quite round which seems to be rare compared to the abalone pearls others have shared.

If you do make ring, please share it so we can see it. Here's where to do that: Your Pearl Jewelry.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful find!

God bless.
