Oh Wow! What a stunning little Art Deco piece. I converted this item into a ring from an original Art Deco 1940's Bar Brooch. The brooch previously had markings on the shank which Identified it as 14ct (585) and it had the makers mark of H.SCH, which through some detective work is a Danish company called H.Schaebel, established 1943 in Copenhagen (till 1973), so I can only assume this must have been one of their earlier pieces as the style is overwhelmingly Art Deco. The head of the ring is totally original (taken from the brooch which had little to no wear and was in exceptional condition) and I have placed this onto a brand new 18ct Yellow Gold Ring, with modern hallmarks.
Key Points about this item:
• Original Art Deco Head in 14ct Rose Gold & Platinum (By H.Schaebel)
• New 2mm wide 18ct Yellow Gold UK Hallmarked Shank/Ring
• Original Freshwater Pearl measuring 4.4mm Diameter with Rose Gold Halo

I would not recommend Pearls to be worn every day, this is purely because Pearls are quite soft and do not take well to perfumes, soaps or water. Small knocks can damage the nacre (outer layer of the pearl) can chip and dull easily. Having said this, if you're careful with your jewellery I'm sure it will be fine, and it is important to remember the pearl can always be replaced easily and inexpensively. As Pearls are an 'Organic' material, they can be porous - a bit like Coral and Ivory.
