In antiquity, the conch shell was regarded by many early cultures as a symbolic mouthpiece of the gods. “Perhaps it was because, when held to the ear, the voice of the sea god murmured through it.
We are proud to present a striking and super rare, natural, pink, conch pearl and diamond platinum ring from Edwardian era.
Conch pearls, especially the pink one, are one of the rarest gift of nature, created in the shell of the Queen or Pink conch mollusc found in the depth of the Carribean sea, jewelers of Edwardian and Deco era prized them as their delicate colour perfectly suited the aesthetic of the time.
