The mother of pearl setting in this ring spent its past life as a stick pin, adorning women's hats in the early 1900's Edwardian era. We have converted it into a ring by pairing it with an antique gold band. The band large as a size 11, however it can be easily resized at your local jeweler. (The band we chose was formerly a men's band)
