Collection: Antique Pearl Rings

The world’s oldest gem, pearls have been revered since long before written history. They have been worn as a form of adornment for millennia and were presented as gifts to Chinese royalty as early as 2300 BC, while in ancient Rome, pearl jewellery was considered the ultimate status symbol. Pearls can be found, or cultivated, in freshwater or saltwater and there are several different types of pearls depending on what mollusc they originate from.
