Pearl Ring: ca. 1840, English. "Often referred to as the world’s oldest gem, the ancients held that the pearl was perfection incarnate. In reality natural pearls are seldom perfect or even nearly round. Conceived by wild oysters living in oceans and by mollusks inhabiting rivers and mountain streams, natural pearls are formed only by nature’s encouragement."
