Remember this loose golden south sea pearl I bought in Palawan last May? (shown below with my pair of golden south sea pearl earrings)
I finally had it designed into a ring!
Here is it on my middle finger:
The pearl is really big, I love it!
I personally chose the design of the ring, which shows 2 gold bands in 14k yellow gold held together by the pearl.
My trusted alahera, Tita Malou, executed my design perfectly.
The thin gold bands really bring out the golden beauty of this Palawan south sea pearl which, if you’ve read my blog post about it, costs me just P1,500.
Stunning, isn’t it?
I wore the earrings and ring set during our Christmas get-together at the office last month, hoping to attract performance bonuses for all of us with my gold Santa hat and jewelry haha!
We may not have been lucky with the bonus (which will come a bit late, like last year) but my getting this beautiful pearl at such a bargain is already a big bonus in itself!
I am very happy with my ring, which now complete my south sea pearls collection!
Here’s to more bargain (and jewelry) finds this year!
So lovely! Medyo naiinggit ako. Hihihi.
If ever you go back to Palawan, pwedeng magpabili?
Sure, Ms. Ellen! =)
Can’t wait for my Puerto Princesa trip! I’m going to find my very own pearl 🙂
I’m excited for you, Joanne! Okay na ticket mo?
Yes Leah 🙂 Got my ticket itinerary from Air Asia 🙂 I just hope that my friends who will accompany me will snag a ticket sale for the travel dates I selected.
Great! If my office sends me there next month, I’ll be happy to meet up with you ö
Cool! Can’t wait to meet you in person 🙂
This is one of the many reasons why I wanted to visit the other side of Palawan… I already explored Coron. Hopefully, next time sa Puerto Princesa naman 🙂 #medyoInggit haha
Sana magsabay tayo ng visit sa Puerto! I’m looking forward to going back there this year ö

Can’t wait for my trip to P.Princesa in a couple of months. I will definitely find a good size golden SSP. I love your ring design, can I copy it? 🙂
Good day Ms. Leah! Been reading your blog for about. 4 months now. I love jewelries too especially pearls pareho tayo ng taste 🙂 . I slept around 2 am (Sydney, Au) time reading all your post about pearls pati yung first website mo nakalkal ko 🙂 hope you won’t stop blogging about your growing pearl collections . Right now I only own a pair of 12mm and rice pearl dangling earrings. You inspired me to collect again lately I have been buying gold jewelries kasi nakalimutan ko na. I had heaps of fun reading your blog. cheers!

Such a good read you have here about pearls!
May i ask, if it’s not too much – how much did you spend in having your loose pearl set in gold? Did you provide the gold? If n
