This splendid ring is a size 6 3/4 and is in fine condition. The pearl is a genuine cultured pearl and the ring is gold, probably 14K but could be 18k, I am not sure. I do guarantee it is gold It came from one of the finests jewelers in this area in the 1950s and was very expensive at that time, the diamond is genuine too. It is an amazing ring and sure to draw many comments. The bee has glue residue that was there from it's creation, that was the way it was made.
