New pearl rings with bubbles. These are naturally coloured akoya pearls from Uwajima. I love how each has a unique 'face', also naturally occurring. Pearls of this type are not usually put on the market as is because it's not "perfectly round", which is a shame because they are so lovely.

ぶつぶつが付いているアコヤ真珠のリングシリーズ。一つ一つ個性的な「顔」をもってとてもかわいい。真円でないため、こういうアコヤはあまり相場にでないそうです。でも自然が作った形だからこそ面白い。
