Some lovely pieces there, although conch pearls leave me only tepid.
Hisano has a beautiful Conch pearl pendant.

Conch Pearls at Bonhams

Conch Pearls at Bonhams

Here's a useful link I've made to past natural pearl necklace auctions at Bonhams:
Click for Bonhams Natural Necklaces

It's sorted by price (high to low), and there's a number of conch pearl necklaces that are right up there in price,
including this diamond and SINGLE conch pearl necklace that sold for HK$ 2,760,000 (USD$ 356,000) inc. premium.

That was fun! :) I just love Bonhams, especially the natural history auctions.

Because I am not happy to see a photo illustrating an important find disappear from a link months or years after the thread was posted, because the link has lapsed, is really too bad, because 90% of the educational value is lost without the illustrations- I therefore, I claim fair use when I post such a photo here. It becomes part of a historical record and enhances the educational process. These are both fair uses for Copyrighted photos.
