This lovely ring is one of the nicest examples of a Mabe Pearl we've come across. Mabe pearls are semi-spherical cultured pearls. Instead of growing inside the body of the oyster, these pearls grow against the inside of the shell. This process causes Mabe pearls to have a flat side, as opposed to being relatively spherical like standard pearls. The unique nacre of the Mabe oyster allows for hues that are quite brilliant and rainbow-like which this pearl has in spades. This type of color is what brings the value to Mabe pearls in addition to their superiority in texture and luster. Add to all that the elevated scroll work of this ring & you've got something quite special.

Let's get this out of the way - this ring is incredible. Wow! Snake rings have been all the rage for the past few years but this one just might trump them all. This original Victorian stunner was restored with a large, brilliant .80 carat antique diamond for the head & two sparkling rubies as eyes. The serpentine grace (and power) of this ring cannot be underestimated as it winds it's way around your finger. This will be in Cambridge as of this weekend for anyone looking for a fail-safe gift for themselves or a beloved. If ever there was an object of lust & envy, this is it.
