    Default Cut Pearls

    Hello all.

    Long time lurker. First time poster.

    I picked up a couple of 14k gold rings with pearls. Upon closer inspection, I noticed both of the pearls had their bases cut or sanded down The rings came from two different sources.

    My thought is that it was done on both rings to bring the widest part of the pearl in line with the highest point in the setting.

    Is this normal or common for setting pearls in rings. I have not come across this previously, although my experience is limited.

    Thanks in advance
