Regal South Sea Pearl Rings

Whereas Akoya pearls have a size range starting at a tiny 1 mm and going to a maximum of 11 mm, South Sea pearls are just starting out at 10 mm, and may go as high as 20 mm. South Sea pearls, the mother of pearls are regal and queenly. Also called the silver-lip or gold-lip oyster depending on the color of the shell lip, the giant size oyster, Pinctada maxima found in the South Seas, cultures the South Sea pearl.

Unlike the flash statement of diamonds, South Sea pearls are a subtle flash of pow. Combining the flash of diamonds and subtlety of the South Sea pearl, this ring features a center band of diamonds in 14K yellow gold.

With just a single South Sea pearl on a slim gold band the emphasis in this ring is clearly on the magnificient regal pearl. No further embellishment is needed.
