FrontRunners: Rock in a Hard Place

  • Cora Tahitian Pearls ring

    To create each of the earrings and rings in the Cora Tahitian Pearls collection (www.corainternational.com), jewelers at New York diamond house Cora carved out a niche in the delicate surface of a pearl and then filled the void with a white diamond. The designs include the ring shown here, which features a 10-carat diamond set in a large Tahitian pearl. Cora will provide the ring’s price upon request.
