My Pearly Aunt and her ring
To me, my aunt was like a priceless pearl, and so is her ring (to me).
She gave me this ring about 10 years ago. She had a lot of glamorous jewelery, living the life of the wife of a lawyer in northern Italy. I'm not an expert and appreciate anything for its sentimental value, so this ring will always be of great value to me. The one thing that surprises me about this ring is its imperfections - There are a few bubble-like circles on surface of the pearl along with something that looks like a rim around the pearl (that is smooth) and potentially a crack?? I don't know the age of the ring - could be 25 years old +. Could the pearls be fake? and could imperfections happen from age or damage?
It would be great to hear the feedback from someone that knows pearls!!
Thanks so much
