My Tesco pearl find.

TERRI Preece defied million-to-one odds by finding a pearl in a 49p oyster.

Husband Phillip, 47, had bought her six to eat from Tesco in St. Peter's, Worcs, when she spotted the gem.

The 49-year-old carer for the homeless, who is about to move to Spain, said: "I let out a screech and went whiter than the pearl itself."

Colleagues had the pounds 100 gem made into a pounds 500 ring and gave it to the mum-of-two as a leaving present.
