A Business Woman Invests in Melo Melo Pearls
Three Orange Melo Pearls
I couldn't stop looking at the melo pearl when one of my friends introduced it to me a year ago and she told me the price that she wanted to sale it for was $2,000.00 USD/ct. I cannot believed it....I thought that I could never own a melo pearl, although, I would love to have one, as an Asian, we believe to own a melo pearl brings luck to you.
Then last year, I met a gemstone dealer through my friends, I bought a very nice piece of yellow sapphire from him and we became very good friends. When I told him about the melo pearl, he immediately told me that he knew a melo pearl dealer, so he took me to the place where I could buy a melo pearl. After an hour drive by car around Ho Chi Minh City, we arrived at the home of a melo dealer. The dealer did not want to show me his melo pearls. He named a few people whom also were melo pearl dealers and told me he can give me their contact if I was interested in a melo pearl. After an hour chatting with him, he told me, "I was charmed enough to bring out the gems. There was fate that brought us to know each other." Therefore, he give me a favor to see his 5 melo pearls and that was all he had at that moment. It took him 6 months to collect them. He sold 3 of his melo pearls to me with better prices then my friend told me a year ago, but still they were not cheap prices.
I am lucky enough to own 3 very beautiful melo pearls. There are 2 pieces the same color and almost same shape, and the size pretty close as one is: 5.85 grams = 29,25ct and the other one is: 6.54grams = 32,70ct. They could be nice to make a pair of earrings, both of these melos pearl have a slight crack on the surface.
The big melo pearl is round and perfect with 14.65grams = 73,25ct.
These melo pearls are orangy color with flame and luster.
