In 2013 my husband and I went to China to visit his brother who is currently working there. While in Shanghai I visited a pearl market and bought a heap of pretty pearls for my gem collection. A friend of mine saw this beautiful white pearl among my collection and asked if I could make her a ring to go with a pair of gold and pearl earrings she has. She gave me two very thin golden bracelets which I melted down. These bracelets were so thin and feeble that I used up almost all of their gold to make this one ring! A much better use of the gold, I think.

This ring consists of two perfect circles held apart by a few scrolls. A third circle was used to make a seat for the pearl. The ring is made from thick 9ct gold rectangular wire with the half drilled pearl glued to a small pin protruding from the top of the ring.
