largest scallop pearl I have ever heard of.

(Newcastle, Maine)

In 2003, my now ex-husband was scallop fishing off the coast of Portland,Maine when he discovered a scallop pearl of extraordinary size. When he brought it home, I immediately placed it in the care of the Jewelry designers at Day's Jewelers in Brunswick who fashioned a gold "basket" around the pearl so that I can wear it as a pendant without using screws, posts, or adhesive. The pearl is a perfect 10mm round and looks very much like the full moon. There appears to be a layer beneath the smooth surface that showcase the swirls and slight color variations that mimic the craters of the moon. It is an exceptional pearl and I will post a picture of it as soon as I can.

Hi Jamie,

That's a super big scallop pearl. Is it white? Colored? I'd love to see photos of it. Is it a hobby or your business? So many questions, I know, but I'm interested in these things. Also which coast are you at? Type of scallop?

Thanks for sharing your good fortune! So fun and amazing. Kari

Hi Trish,

Yes, please do send photos. I'd love to see your large scallop pearl and add it to your page. I like the idea of putting it in a cage so you didn't have to harm it in anyway.

Thank you for sharing. I'm going to be adding a few scallop pearls for sale soon on my site. These shouldn't be overlooked as all natural pearls are special!

God bless
