The Conch Pearl

The caribbean rarity

The conch pearl is one of the rarest natural pearls in the world and is made in the sea snail with the Latin name “Strombus Gigas”.

The sites are mainly located in the Caribbean Sea up to the Bermuda Islands. The snail is found by divers at a depth of 40 to 50 meters. Anyway, the Strombus Gigas is not actually fished for the pearls, but for its meat, which is considered as a delicacy in the Caribbean.

This rarity – rarely and of dreamlike beauty – waits in the depths of the sea, hidden in the Strombus Gigas. For those whom it will enchant by its mysterious charm of its unfathomable nature, and who will one day choose it as his favorite piece.

The Conch Pearl will always remain something special

The Pearl book

The gemologist Elisabeth Strack describes in her book “Pearls” all kinds of natural pearls and cultured pearls.

The book is considered by experts as the “the Pearl Book – the Pearl Bible” and provides a fantastic insight into the thousand years history of pearls.

With 696 pages, “Perlen” is the most comprehensive reference work in this field.

More than 650 graphics (including pearl illustrations by Kurt Hofmann), tables, photographs and detailed maps document the history of pearls. In her detailed work, the author also devotes herself in detail to the Conch pearl.

We are particularly proud that the company Kurt Hofmann (today’s Conch Pearls GmbH) is mentioned by name, as we were able to support the author by providing appropriate pearls for her vivid visual material.
