Lot Details
Conch Pearl with an Unusual Shape
Strombus gigas or "Queen Conch"
Caribbean Sea

It would be difficult to imagine a more feminine gem than this heart-shaped non-nacreous conch pearl. Light baby pink in color, the pearl has a fine flame-pattern iridescence shimmering across the surface of its unique shape—inspiration enough in itself for an imaginative designing jeweler.
Weighing approximately 6.43 carats and measuring 10.0 x 9.5 x 8.0mm
