    Last addition to my stickpins collection, bought for mother of pearl, gold color metal!

    Once cleaned, the mount is solid gold, which I knew from the nice mount work :-)

    This shape of river pearl is called dog tooth, I got bitten!

    The pearl is 1/2 inch long and has a nice luster on whole.

    Yepee!

      Cool.
      Why is it a Mississippi pearl? I have not heard of them before although I know of freshwater pearls.
