The largest pearl ever known was found in the Philippines in 1934 and is known as the Pearl of Lao Tzu. It is a naturally-occurring, non-nacreous, calcareous concretion (pearl) from a giant clam. Because it did not grow in a pearl oyster it is not pearly; instead the surface is glossy like porcelain. Other pearls from giant clams are known to exist, but this is a particularly large one, weighing 14 lb (6.4 kg).

Products made of mother of pearl preserved in ancient tombs, with at least several thousand years.

All these things were made of large shells recovered from the Red Sea.

The Swan Pendant kept in Russian Hermitage, has the dimensions in the vertical and horizontal directions – 19.2 cm and 5.9 cm respectively. A large nacreous baroque pearl, almost oval in shape, constitutes the centerpiece of the pendant, forming the body of the swan. The wings, tail and the curved neck, that completes the composite figure of the swan – made of gold, set with small cut stones and covered with black and white enamel.
