I bought this ring in 1975 from my harvard professor friend's wife. It has an unusual history. Handed down from Great Grand mother to her sister. Her Grandmother's husband was a wealthy NY doctor.The sister was a PH'd and a devout follower of the Indian GURU Bagwan Ranese. He bought the town of Antelope, Oregon and appointed her it's mayor. Bagwan was noted for riding around town in one of his 29 Rolls Royces. Sister gave Bagwan all her worldly posessions. She asked her sister to send her the ring for Bagwan. Sister refused and sold the ring to us. I had it looked at by the best jeweler in Hartford and he confirmed it was worth much more than we paid. The cushion cut Diamond is very clear and you can see the bottom and side cuts. With a glass you can see a very tiny black spec under the face cut and a smaller one toward the bottom. The pearl's size are matched. Ring size close to a #5. 14k white gold.
