Pearl, the birthstone for the month of June, has been worn in jewelry for thousands of years. Early Chinese myths told of pearls falling from the sky when dragons fought, while the Greeks believed that wearing pearls would promote marital bliss and prevent newlywed women from crying. An organic gem, pearls are formed when an irritant such as a tiny stone or bit of sand gets inside the mollusk's shell. A lustrous substance, called nacre, is secreted around the object to protect the soft internal surface of the mollusk. As layer upon layer of nacre coats the irritant, a pearl is formed. Light that is reflected from these overlapping layers produces a characteristic iridescent luster. This process of building a solid pearl can take up to seven or eight years.
This lovely sterling silver ring beautifully frames a 6 mm cultured black pearl with a petal mounting. The interior of the ring is gently rounded for ease of wear and is wide enough to accommodate engraving in any of our styles. Our personalized inside ring engraving is available here: Click Here for Custom Engraving! The accompanying band is light, bubbly, and cheerful, and easy to wear with other rings - from your wedding set to a set of stacking rings.
