[Looking4] Mississippi River pearl

Anyone have any sources for Mississippi River wing shaped pearls?
I’m looking for a single to replace a missing one on a customer’s
repair. A long time ago I used to have a source but for the life of
me I can’t remember who it was. Off list replies are fine.

I think that the company is called American Pearl. They are in
Tennessee. They do the AGTA show in Tucson, so you can look them up.

Good luck Dennis

Daniel try American Pearl Co. they have a web site.

Try the American Pearl Company in Nashville. Gina Latendresse is the
owner, and very knowledgeable. They will have the best selection.

Dear Daniel,

Try American Pearl Company in Nashville TN. Phone: 615-353-8988

They are AGTA members and when I bought from them back in the 1990s
they had a lot of specialty shaped pearls all cultured from
Mississippi river mollusks.
