Hello all

I am new to this forum and happy to see there is a lot of activity from the members. I want to create this thread to find conch pearl's collectors, buyers and sellers. I do own several conch pearls but it gets hard sometimes to find the right buyer or collector or just a regular person that will want to own one. So maybe this way we can create a community with the same interest.

Thank you for answering. The pearls I own I get them with lot of time an dedication, they come from fishermen I have get to know throughout the years from the Caribbean an occasionally from a dealer here and there. Takes a lot of traveling, meeting people and visiting interesting places. I know the Karipearls website and I have exchanged e-mails with her in the past but she is kind of like a broker or sort of a middle man that usually does not buy them just sale them through her website .
It gives a lot of satisfaction to get to know what happened to pearls you used to own. Like the ones in the pictures below that a customer sent me with her creation.

Some may have seen the conch pearls but the percentage that have seen them in the mollusk is actually very low. I show some examples.
