My brother found this rare gem after clamming in Narraganset Bay, RI. It’s 20 mm, brown, and beautiful. I had it set into a gold ring. Nice catch for the day.

found pearl in RI
by: Anonymous

My name is Karl and i was at a cocktail party at my country club in Rhode Island and having been at the raw bar i ate a little neck clam and found a beautiful pearl inside, slightly irregular but opaque in color. What kind of value should i expect and who would look at it?

Wow, 20mm is big! Glad you could have something special made from it.

Yes, indeed, good catch for the day!
