This is a beautiful ring! It is a little different from our other Hawaiian Scroll pearl ring and a little more affordable. This ring has a Tahitian Style Shell Pearl and is 14K gold plated over brass so it has a harder base metal. If you are a little rough on your rings this is the one to get. Shell pearls are reconstituted abalone (Paua) shells that are formed into a perfectly round pearl and looks like an expensive Tahitian Pearl without the cost! The scroll carving design is carried around the whole ring including the back. Gold plating makes it hypoallergenic. Available in Gold Plating only. Sizes 5 - 13. No half sizes.
