puzzle

There are two pearls in a jar.

One of them is the largest pearl in the world, but it is not the largest pearl in the jar.

How can this be?

EDIT:

Props to nemo_wistar for figuring this out!

These statements are both true because there are only two pearls in the jar. Thus, there is no largest pearl in the jar. Instead, the largest pearl in the world would be the larger of the two pearls in the jar (there is no largest).
