Quahog Pearl - An Omen
Just wanted to share that 16 years ago I found a clam quahog pearl in the Indian River near Sebastian Inlet in Central Florida. This was an omen of how special the area was as we had planned to move to this area and were having a home built.
We really loved having this clam pearl and had it made into a ring (a special setting for this) as you can see from the pictures. The deeper color is on the bottom (in the ring mount) and can be seen when removed from ring.
We took this to jewelers and as you know, it takes a special appraiser to let you know the value so we do not have an appraisal. However, it is larger than the one that was just found in Lake Worth.
Would you be able to help us locate an appraiser to find the true value? We would consider selling the pearl at this time.
Thank you for this site and feel free to contact me regarding this pearl.
