Over twenty-two years ago my husband bought me a pearl pendant in Kauai, Hawaii. I just ran across the receipt for it. Oh my gosh, did we overpay! We knew nothing about pearls back then (and only slightly more now). According to the receipt it is a 10mm pearl. Here is a picture of it. In case you don't have any American pennies running around they are about 2 cm in diameter. BTW I didnít take this picture.
