Clam Bake Pearl Find!
by Yvonne Freeman
My husband was at his union's annual clam-bake this past weekend, and was just telling one of his co-workers about a story on the news about the guy that found the $1 million dollar pearl in Florida. Not five minutes later, he was chewing a steamed little-neck clam, and spit out a dark purple 8mm 3/4 round pearl! It's 6 mm deep, and absolutely gorgeous! We live in Western NY, and are having a heck of a time finding anyone who can tell us what it is worth or anything about it - other than one kind jeweler measuring it for us! He also stated there are no obvious blemishes in it or cracks/scratches. If anyone has any information at all about where we could have an appraisal done on it I would so appreciate it! yvonne dot freeman at gmail dot com. Thanks!
