A fisherman in the Philippines found a 75-pound pearl, then kept it under his bed as a good luck charm for 10 years, the Daily Mail reports. The pearl, possibly worth $100 million, is one foot wide and 2.2 feet long, the article says. The current world’s biggest pearl, the Pearl of Allah, weighs 14 pounds and is worth $35 million.

The gem awaits authentication by the Gemologist Institute.

She Wanted to Spend More Time with Her Kids. She Called Wilkerson.

Your children are precious. More precious than gold? Absolutely! Just ask Lesley Ann Davis, owner of Lesley Ann Jewels, an independent jewelry store that — until the end of 2023 — had quite a following in Houston, Texas. To spend more time with her four sons, all in high school, she decided to close her store. Luckily, she was familiar with Wilkerson and called them as soon as she knew she wanted to move on to bigger, better and more family-focused things. Was she happy with her decision? Yes, she was. Says Davis, “Any owner looking to make that life change, looking to retire, looking to close, looking for a pause in their career, I would recommend Wilkerson. Hands down!”
