COMMENTS: Bold and lustrous, this designer ring is by Mikimoto! The setting is rich 18k yellow gold with a lovely scalloped design underneath the glowing Mabe Pearl. Perhaps the best-loved gems of all time, pearls—natural and cultured—occur in a wide variety of colors. The most familiar are white and cream, like this beautiful mabe pearl. Natural pearls form around a microscopic irritant in the bodies of certain mollusks. Cultured pearls are the result of the deliberate insertion of a bead or piece of tissue that the mollusk coats with nacre. In 1893, the founder Kokichi Mikimoto, successfully created the world's first cultured pearls. Ever since then, Mikimoto has been seeking to harness the allure of pearls, translating our hopes and dreams into pearl jewelry. Mikimoto imbues each piece with a sense of artistry and aesthetic that was born in Japan and has been shaped by influences from different cultures around the world. The pearl is securely bezel set with delicate etched detail surrounding it. The pearl stands proudly at just under 1/2" off the finger. Circa 1950-60's. Pictured as received from a local estate. Excellent estate condition with minimal wear indicative of age.
