This unique necklace consists of a large Abalone Shell slice that nests a single Tahitian pearl inside its curvature, making it look like the pearl grew in the shell. The pendant is attached to a 36 inch long 14 karat gold fill chain that can be adjusted in length. The abalone shell has a wonderful iridescence in all colors of the rainbow and is also referred to as the "Opal of the Seas". It has been used traditionally for jewelry in the Pacific Ocean regions such as the Polynesian Maori culture. Tahitian pearls are farmed in the warm waters of French Polynesia and are some of the most valuable pearls on the market today.
