Large Gray Mabe Pearl Ring - 8-3/4

This beautiful vintage ring is a large gray mabe pearl - size 8-3/4. The pearl is set in a sterling setting and measures 1" x 5/8" wide.

A mabe (pronounced Mar-bay) pearl is a half-spherical cultured pearl grown on the inside shell of a mollusk, as opposed to inside a mollusk's body. Mabe pearls are grown by gluing a plastic hemisphere onto the inside of a mollusk's shell. Once the hemispherical nucleus is covered with a sufficient amount of nacre, the pearl is cut away from the inner shell, the bead taken out, and the cavity filled with a substance such as epoxy resin and backed by a mother-of-pearl plate. Mabe pearls are sometimes referred to as blister pearls.
