    Hello pearl lovers!

    While Im far from being a pearl connoisseur that doesnt keep me from enjoying them.
    I found this vintage 14k yellow gold pear shaped Mabe ring on eBay for only $85.00 and had to purchase it. A sweet son was selling some of his mothers jewelry, this ring included.

    It will be here in a few days and I will have to post some handshots but until then here are some of the sellers photos.

    I'm excited to finally own a larger pearl as a statement ring as ive always wanted one!
    Feel free to post your larger mabe rings as well!! Mabe rings are gorgeous in my opinion and so eloquently feminine. I love the darker colors as much as the lighter whites-creams so please "show em if you got em"!

    Beautiful Mabe ring - love the gorgeous pear shape!

    I do have a Sea of Cortez Mabe pearl I've been meaning to set into a ring but just haven't centered in on the right design ... your lovely Mabe ring is inspiring to get moving on that project!

    Thank you ladies!!!! I honestly cannot believe that I found her for what I did, shes a total steal. & marymm please do set your sea of cortez! It would look stunning in sterling silver or luxurious in yellow gold!!

    The ring arrived and its in excellent condition!
    Boy did I underestimate its size!
    Its approx. 26x15mm and 6mm thick!
    I totally love her size!!
    It fits on my pointer fingers or my ring fingers with a bit of clear sizing wrap.
    I cant stop rearranging it on my hands!
    It looks lovely upright or upside down.
    Heres my huge cream mabe girl!!
    Other than its "14k 585" marking there is this marking that looks like the makers. Do any of you know it?
    Thanks in advance (:
