    Hi Preswine. Long time no see.

    I remember following your quest with bated breath. And I was so happy you picked a natural pearl. I don't think you will see much of anything on that ring from banging for many years to come. Check out my old Bahrain pearl a couple of posts above. I has been worn since the 30's as part of a pair of earrings and since the 40's or 50's as a ring. As I said, the gold is more battered than he pearl!

    Now we also have the testimony that Sarah of Kojima and Pacific Pearls has worn a dangling Tahitian on a bracelet for 7 years to no ill effect. I personally saw it bang a couple times so I asked..........

      all jewelry can be repaired if needed.

      Its just for me, I do not want to sell an item to a customer that I would lay awake at night worrying about. I'd rather lose the sale then cause a customer uneeded grief down the road.

      I think I will have to print that to remind myself, (and any other sales people). Its a 'welcome to the real world' sentiment, that puts it all into perspective.
      Very profound.
      Thanks Kevin

        When I made the simple pearl rings on silver I made the first one for myself. The pearl is just glued onto the spike and has no protection at all, and has banged around a lot. It is still fine.That was last January and I have worn it just about continuously through dishwashing, bathing, gardening, all sorts of stuff.

          The curves on this one are amazing, but not quite sure if it's protective. Someday ...
