PEARLS—PEELING— How are pearls peeled without scratching the surface?
I would not try to peel them as the least scratch on a pearl may lessen the value $50 or more. A 25 grain pear shaped pearl is worth $450 to $500; that is, if of good quality. A pear shaped pearl of 10 grains is worth about $300.
