A New Jersey man, dining at a restaurant, bites into a pearl in his raw clam

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

Good morning. I'm Steve Inskeep. A New Jersey couple went out to eat, and Michael Spressler was enjoying an appetizer - a dozen clams on the half shell - which is when he bit into something really hard. This has happened to me.

His wife prefers to keep it rather than sell it, turning the pearl into a piece of jewelry. How romantic. It's MORNING EDITION. Transcript provided by NPR, Copyright NPR.
