  • Quahog pearl

    Hello I've had this pearl since the 90s when my grandmother found it while cleaning quahogs for chowder. I'm not sure if it's worth a lot and would like to know a ballpark number on it if this community is familiar. I am wanting to ultimately sell it and give the proceeds to my grandmother who is having a rough time financially after her husband passed away. I live in Ohio currently and cannot find a reputable source for valuation. The pearl is darker purple but with a lighter lavender glow if that makes sense. It's very hard to take macro shots with my cell phone and hard to show the true color. I put the dime in for perspective. It's the shape of a skittle with one side being a little rounder and more eye pleasing and the other side being a little flat with a small divot (button type?) If you would like any more pictures please just let me know. Thank you for checking out my first post here.

    Hello FisherMann87 and welcome to our pearl loving forum!
    Seems like you have a very dark and lustrous, button shaped Quahog pearl there...I really don't know how much it would be worth because I'm no expert in Quahog pearls.
    BUT I have a friend who is quite a Brendan Breer. This is his website.

    Also, please check out this thread with more details about Quahog pearls.

    Hope this is helpful and that you get a good price for the pearl
