    Default Hisano's ring from Jeremy

    I know it was on the PP blog, but was there a thread here? I'm not having luck finding it and I wanted to ogle it again...

    I don't know where the thread is, but I can help with a photo, as I took several photos of Hisano's ring with the purloined pearls.

    Here's the blog post about it-- I don't recall seeing a thread on P-G about it.

    Thanks! The best photo is the one on the GIA website (scroll down). It was nice to get the designer, Takayas Mizuno, some credit. It was also published in the journal Gems & Gemology as part of the GIA Gemological Research Conference in 2011, where Jeremy and I had a poster presentation on metallic freshwater pearls.

    A memorable pearl for a fascinating woman. Both wear well! That really captures the color perfectly. Too much light blows it out.
