Quahog Pearl Ring - A Father's Gift

Quahog Pearl Ring
Sometime in the fifties my Dad got a second job working as a short order cook at a pub that featured a raw oyster and clam bar on the weekends. He brought home this pearl.
It didn't really look like a pearl so he didn't think much about it.
But anyway he put it in a little box and put it in a drawer.
After my Dad died I asked a jeweler to put it in a setting for me. It has been there ever since. And when I saw a picture of a Quahog pearl I had to send you a picture of my ring.
Can you tell me if it actually is a Quahog pearl, and if the pearl itself has any value other than sentimental.
