There is a major international exhibition of pearls at the Qatar Museum. The exhibition covers the range of types of pearls, the history of pearls and the pearl industry, designer jewelry made from pearls. Unfortunatetly, it’s been difficult to find any images of pieces on display.
I have been able to find some images of the types of things on display.
