(Santa Clara, CA, USA)
84 carat natural Abalone pearl
Natural abalone pearl 1st polishing
Partially polished abalone pearl
84 ct abalone pearl pendant on 14K white gold
To make this story more interesting, I have it all on video, from the dive to pulling the 84 carat pearl out of the abalone.
As I see listed on your site, I think I plan on taking it to Bonhams to get it valuated, and even set as a pendant.
Enjoy the videos :)
Hi everyone, this is my follow up story on my last posting " NorCal Abalone Pearl 6/18/11 on this site"
It took this long to dry out and have a jeweler fix it up.
Pendant setting is 14k X-1 white gold. Setting is a free form design, multi-piece lost wax casting, laser welded together.
I still haven't had it appraised yet, that is the next thing on my list of todo's.
