Pearl Exhibit in DC


#1

There is a great new pearl exhibit at the Smithsonian in the same
room as the Hope Diamond at the Museum of Natural History. The
Allure of Pearls features Elizabeth Taylor’s La Peregrina necklace,
the 76 mm Pearl of Asia, the 114 mm Hope Pearl, the black Drexel
pearl, the exquisite near-perfect round Paspaley Pearl from
Australian waters, 2 sets of rare pink conch pearls, the Black
Beauty Pearl with incredible orient and several other notable
pearls. The exhibit is open until September 5, 2005. If you take
advantage of this rare opportunity to see these amazing pearls, be
sure to pick up the brochure which tells some of the history of each
pearl.
