She Wants: Black Mother of Pearl Large Flower Ring

Keeping with the ever-popular trend of 3-dimensional flowers in fashion for Spring and Summer 2011, I have noticed that large floral rings are very popular.  Since my flower ring lost one of its gemstones, I have been casually keeping my eye out for something pretty and not too over-the-top.  I think this Black Mother of Pearl Flower Ring may be just what I'm looking for.

Many of the oversized rings I have seen this season have been made of less costly metals.  This one is made from Black Mother of Pearl and sterling silver.  I would consider this ring to be large, but not quite has huge as some of the rings I've seen recently.  This particular ring is a size 8, which would be perfect for wearing on my index finger.  It has been sitting in my shopping cart for over a week now.  This ring currently is selling for only $26.85 plus the cost of shipping.  I think I love it because the flower looks so graceful.

Normally, I do not really care for Mother of Pearl jewelry, but the black has a unique look.  Does anyone know how durable Mother of Pearl is?  I had a hematite ring once and broke it in less than a day.
