Set in 18K white gold, this exotic and fashionable black Tahitian south sea cultured pearl ring features a perfectly round, perfectly clean black green pearl set aside a gold and diamond surround. A staple of any woman's wardrobe, a pearl ring is a classic that can accompany her through all the important occasions of her life. Black pearls with the sought-after green overtones are amongst the rarest colors. This pearl is "A Quality", the highest grade of the A, B, C and D nomenclature assigned to grade black Tahitian south sea pearls. The allure of the black pearl is in the way it captures light, refines it and delivers it back in a dark incandescent glow. This ring features an 10.25mm pearl and .23 carats of G color, SI1 clarity diamonds. Unlike gems that are extracted from the earth and polished, the pearl is the only gem originating from a living organism. American Pearl is widely regarded as perhaps the most reliable and honest source of wholesale pearls anywhere in the world. In business since 1950, American Pearl's networking legacy is a key reason we are able to operate with the huge patchwork of inside sources and large economy of scale that enable us to import at such drastically reduced prices -- a savings we happily pass on to our many loyal customers.
