J54 / Meet a Stranger : Rochelle

Rochelle is a Sales Assistant into a jewellery/gallery in Geraldton. She was really enthusiastic showing me the stunning black pearls of the Abrolhos Islands and the pink diamonds which are worth a fortune. She explained me how they collect the pearls : each shell can produce up to 3 pearls in her lifetime : the older, the bigger (and the more value) is the pearl.
