Pearl Girls – 460-825 worth it!
Well, after *three* delivery delays, my Imperial Pearls 14-15mm Cultured Freshwater Pearl and White Topaz Sterling Silver Heart Ring finally found its way to me today and I am *so* happy I gave it a try. It’s gorgeous!!! There was only a very, very limited inventory of these available when this ring popped up online a few weeks ago, (like maybe 25-30 total across all sizes) and there are even fewer of them now, but if you are looking for a true grande pearl, grab this one if you can! Mine is far smoother and nicer than the one in the image, is every bit of 15 mm, and has wonderful luster. I’m still trying to pin down the orient. The luster is so reflective that it grabs whatever color it is up against, but I *think* on its own, it actually has a very unusual teal/turquoise flash to it – more like something you would expect to see in the peacock Tahitians than a white freshwater pearl. Simply stunning.
My *only* concern – and frankly something that surprised me – is that it does appear that the pearl is held in with adhesive rather than being peg mounted. Was really shocked by that – and not in a good way – but I am so taken with it that I will just try to be extra careful of it.
Please forgive my dried out, old lady, winter hands – and the less than professional quality pictures! But just to give an idea of it’s yumminess – and since I seriously doubt this piece will ever make it on air – I had to share! :heart:
Seanchai, that’s a beautiful ring and it looks great on you. I can see why you are so happy with it. It is disappointing that it isn’t peg mounted, but as you said–just be a little more careful with it.
