Platinum Art Deco Black Pearl Ring
A superb, weighty platinum Art Deco example, this captivating black pearl solitaire has enchants her audience.

The luminous luster of the black pearl seems to shapeshift in different light: the lavender tones glow by candle, the golden ochre shades glisten in natural light, while the sage green sheen radiates in simple kitchen lighting. We are certain that she will be a collection mainstay for whichever lucky curator acquires this rare jewel.
