Honora once again brought us a beautiful and unique piece of pearl jewelry. The baroque pearl is large and interesting with a lovely iridescent sheen. The ring is well balanced on the sculpted band. It is very comfortable. I look forward to this year's new designs.

This ring is not pretty. The pearl I got looks like a blob of cement. I am returning it.
Rated 5 out of 5 by one happy Q shopper LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS RING !!!
This ring is fabulous!!! I had a problem with the pearl coming off the ring but I got it repaired by a friend and so far, so good. If it happens again, I will return it back to QVC. I just pray I don't lose the pearl first.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Consumerdiva Gorgeous Ring, but...
I ordered this because I wanted a funky pearl ring and it delivered. It was bold, it was beautiful, then it broke. No problem, I returned it for a replacement. The replacement was a joke compared to the first one that I received. Not only was it less in size by quite a bit, but when I opened it the way it was presented vs the first ring, made it look like it had already been returned once - which wouldn't be a huge deal except that I paid for a new one. So, I sent back the second one too. Thought about going for the third time, but that seemed ridiculous.

I ordered 3 rings to pick the best, only one looked pretty good but I wasn't sold on it. The other 2 were more gray. Ordered another 3 rings and got the one I love!! I only do this when there can be so many variables, every pearl is so different. This one has beautiful color and shape
I must say I laughed my head off at the reviewer who thought her pearl was horrible!! She's hilarious!!

I love hearing Joel and Ralph's stories about how they hand-select pearls, and this is one of their best finds! The pearl on my ring is stunning. I love its shape and generous thickness, but the luster and skin colors are absolutely incredible! As reported, it displays a rainbow of colors and does look wet. This ring will go with anything and will be appropriate for any occasion, but I'm going to especially enjoy it this summer. I like to wear larger rings on my middle finger, and this is perfect there. Keep up the great work you do, gentlemen, and tell the mollusks to do the same!
Rated 1 out of 5 by abcdef321 One big, very ugly, baroque pearl
I received my baroque pearl ring in the mail before lunchtime, and I'm wearing my disappointment with this ring like a heavy weight on my spirit.
The whole point of the ring is the pearl, and everything else is secondary. Ralph of Honora said during his on-air presentation that he and Joel picked only the finest baroque pearls for these rings. The pearl mounted on the silver band of my ring should have been a reject. It is about as ugly a pearl as ugly gets.
The baroque pearl that I received has a tall ridge that runs from northeast to southwest, as though a drone were taking an aerial view of a geologic feature, akin to an elevated ridge. Along this spine, this baroque pearl is quite tall. Jutting out from this is a thin piece of nacre with a pimple on top. This flat piece sits at 10 o'clock or 4 o'clock to the raised ridge, depending on which direction I slip the ring on my finger. This piece of thin nacre that juts out from the ridge has a the pimple of nacre on top, and the thin shelf of nacre flips up at the end. The only nice thing that I can say about the particular baroque pearl that I received is that it has a beautiful blue-gray color. But the color will not compensate for the horrible disparity in the pearl's thickness, from very tall to very thin, and the fact that this misshapen pearl is so visually displeasing.
I also do not understand why the designer created a split shank, the split, which looks like a hole, right next to the pearl, on each side of the baroque pearl. I did see these holes in the online photo, so I wasn't surprised when I received the ring. However, I do think the band would have been far more attractive if it had been solid all the way around. The holes, or split shanks, detract from what should be the beauty of the band.
I am no stranger to fine jewelry and fine jewelry sales, so the irregularity of a baroque pearl is something I understand. But this ring goes back to QVC as soon as I can repackage it and return it to the post office. I will say that we had a half inch of rain last night, and the brown envelope in which the box arrived was virtually unsealed, open to anyone who cared to take the box from the envelope. The glue that should have sealed the envelope did not hold at all. Luckily, the pearl was inside the box inside the brown envelope.
I must return this ring to QVC, despite the time it takes to repackage it, run it to the post office, not to mention the return shipping charge. The baroque pearl is just too ugly to justify keeping the ring.
