Did You Notice?
This ring has a mabe pearl (also known as a half pearl or blister pearl) which is different than a traditional pearl because of its shape and how it's grown. Traditional pearls have a round circle shape, but mabe pearls have a half-spherical shape since they are grown attached to the inside of the shell rather than simply within the mollusk's body.
