This customer purchased a gorgeous Tahitian pearl while on vacation in Tahiti. Her wish was to have it made into a ring with a leaf motif design. The first time I saw the pearl, I imagined it nestled in flowing leaves of a different kind. Its gorgeous colour and lustre are gifts from the ocean, and having it held in a bed of kelp seemed like the perfect setting. Once the customer saw the initial sketches, she agreed. Here are images of preliminary sketches and the finished ring.
Tahitian pearl, 14K white gold.
