Quahog Pearl Earrings
by Polly Foley
(Yarmouth MA 02673)
In 1990 I brought a quahog pearl to Barnstable Jewelers in Hyannis, MA to have it made into a pendant. The jeweler (Elliot) broke it in half so he took it upon himself to make earrings from the two halves and set them in sterling.
I had no idea what it was worth at the time until I saw the article about the Florida couple
that found the pearl in his order of clams.
My pearl is aprox. 7 to 8mm. Is there any worth in my earrings?
