There are lots of cities in the U.S. now hosting arts & crafts days, especially in the summer. Here is no different. First Thursdays is big in the Pearl District of Portland and in the Pearl is where I found this ring. It is cultured South Sea pearl that has not been fully developed.
Pearls are know for its perfection in shape, and color. Its imperfections are sometimes overlooked. The rawness of this piece is in its own right its perfection. From the color to the contours , see how the pearl was cut out of its shell? This makes it a stunning, and a statement piece.
