Although you see pink initially when you look at the central pearl, the closer you look the more soft, luminous greens appear. It’s got a lovely lustre.
Himawari is Japanese for Sunflower which I thought was an appropriate name for this design.
I visited the fabulous Pearls exhibition at the V&A with my Mother recently, and found it utterly fascinating how pearls are cultured in different shapes. Although I made this ring about 5 years ago, now I understand exactly how the coin pearl was made!
