I live in Alberta, Canada. I would like to have a family ring made with pearls, sapphires and diamonds. (2 kids born in June, 2 kids born in April and one born in September) All I've been told by jewelers I've approached here is "don't put pearls in a ring". I think I've educated myself on the potential risks with pearls and would like to proceed - I like the idea of buying an extra pearl at the time the ring is made as "insurance". I am looking for personal recommendations for a jeweler who would be willing to work with me in this process (budget about $1500).
Thanks in advance!
