You need very strong hands to create a tight nest of wire for the pearl to lie safely in. The hands that made these also take very good care of us AND our store so I KNOW that the same love goes into these rings! This is one of my absolute favorite ring designs, passed down from my wire mentor, Lynne Merchant and now being made by “Cousin Anna,” who also had the privilege of learning from Lynne. If you wear it a lot, (which I do), and it starts to lose its perfectly round shape, just stop by or mail it in and we’ll hammer and clean it for you anytime! A pearl hug is very reassuring, and I hope it will carry you through your day.
