    3 hours to go

    Would make a amazing pendant I still have 3 big abalones to make into jewellery otherwise this one would make a damn nice statement piece

    Hope somebody here gets it there is a auto bid on it because I went from 700 to where it's now so hopefully the auto bid isnt to high

    Good luck !

    Any concerns that the pearl has been kept in a (dry?) safe deposit box until now? Really beautiful, though!

    $45/carat. Seems fair for both seller and buyer.

    A certain someone we know stopped at $7000. Without seeing the piece to ensure there aren't any cracks or the like, it could get dangerous.

    I think this is an historical opportunity to get look at a fantastic pearl, there fore I am posting it here- with a link that expire in 90 dys, so if I don't copy it, it will be gone to the internet. Maybe I am in a gray area, but I think strongly that this is a permissible use of the photos. So sue me, P-G is not responsible for my chices.
