This exquisite pearl with its magnificent luster and size has few equals.

Once a pearl like this enters a collection it generally remains there as a safely guarded jewel.

This is the kind of pearl that the merchant in the book of Matthew found in a field and then sold all he had so he could purchase the field and obtain the valuable pearl.

The owner of this pearl has named it "Star of Hope" as a tribute to his mother, whose name is Bituin (Star), and his aunt, whose name is Pag-asa (Hope), hence..."Star of Hope". The name is also fitting since if you notice that there is small protrusion in the pearl that could resemble a star that rests on a rock which signifies hope.

This pearl has a GIA certification of authenticity.

To me, this pearl epitomizes the ultimate in pearl luxury and beauty...the luster, size, baroque shape, unique characteristics....through my "pearl eyes" it is inconceivably beautiful!

A thing of beauty is forever!
