Men's Pearl Ring in Gold with Diamonds

About

Men used to wear pearl jewelry. Kings wore pearls throughout history. But in more contemporary times, one thing you will not find is a "men's pearl ring." Do men not want a pearl ring? I wanted a pearl ring for years and years and years. Was I the only man in the world who wanted one? No. Men search for pearl rings as frequently as they search for jade rings. The difference is, they don't find what they're looking for. But I never give up. And on one ordinary day, I saw a ring very similar to this one appear on a jewelry blog. It took me a while to track down the original source but once I did, I asked the Australian jeweler if the ring was available for sale. Alas, it had been sold. Of course. But he told me he would make me a similar ring. Two months later, this arrived in the mail. Created entirely by hand by master jeweler in central Australia, this solid 18K yellow gold ring features a pair of non-nucleated (uncultured) keshi South Sea pearls from the Cook Islands. Keshi pearls are technically considered "cultured" pearls but this is because of pearl industry lobbying and not because of fact. Let me explain: the process of culturing a pearl sometimes results in a second pearl being formed by the oyster. This second pearl is 100% natural. But it was formed as a result of the culturing process. That's why it's considered a "cultured" pearl. But a Keshi pearl is all nacre, which is the "pearly" substance that makes a pearl a pearl. The silvery South Sea pearls you see here have a surface luster that is as fine as luster can be. A pair of tiny but nearly perfect diamonds are tucked within the folds of the highly textured gold. The ring is rugged, masculine and completely unique. If you want a bold, elegant ring you won't see on any other man's finger, this is it. Spectacularly, impossibly rare and beautifully designed and hand-fabricated, this men's South Sea pearl ring is a true statement ring. The ring was custom made for me, Augusten Burroughs, and has never been worn. The ring is currently a size 9 ¼ - 9 ½ and could be resized by your local jeweler. The ring ships with the designer's original rendering.
