The Pearl of Kuwait is known to be the sixth largest natural pearl in the world.
The Pearl of Kuwait was discovered in the Persian Gulf in the 19th Century. Like many other Persian Gulf Pearls, it is a white drop-shape pearl with silky luster. The Pearl of Kuwait is known to be the sixth largest natural pearl in the world, weighing 64.35 carats.
The pearl was only recently given the name 'The Pearl of Kuwait' in 2004 when it was purchased by Symbolic & Chase at a Christie's London auction. Symbolic & Chase chose the name because of the pearl's origin. The pearl was purchased for $270,000.
The Pearl of Kuwait is now set as a pendant necklace, capped with diamonds. It was last on public display at the Smithsonian's 'The Allure of Pearls' exhibit.
