She Used To Buy These Pearls For $2.50 As A Kid…Guess What They’re Worth Now!

The owner of these Tennessee River Pearls has quite the story! Apparently they used to be so plentiful, that she could buy them for $2.50 a piece! She also had a story about skipping them across the river, which has to make you laugh given what we know now. The entire collection has an estimated value of $6,500, but she’s not interested in the money. Instead, she’s going to pass these on to her grand daughters! While the monetary value of these pearls is exciting, the real charm comes from the stories attached to them. It seems like each pearl had a distinct, special memory affiliated with it. Hear them for yourself in the following clip below!
