    Isle of Wight Pearls

    Despite what you might think, not all pearls are round and white, nor do they all come from oysters or even from the sea.

    Pearls do come in all shapes and sizes and in various colours and can be found in freshwater molluscs as well.

    This shop has them all.

    As you walk into the shop, the three islands on the left all contain pearls set in gold. On the right there are another three islands, the middle one contains fake pearls and costume jewellery, the two islands on either side of this one contain pearls mounted in silver.

    What to buy: In the second photo you can see a large clam, within this clam is what is probably the world's largest pearl. It is about 12 inches long and about 4 inches wide.

    What to pay: How long is a piece of string :o)
