    I have old rings that have the diamond setting missing. I could add pearls to up style the rings. Buying a blank ring with a pad attached would hold the pearl & glue better. I've made several DIY rings using small rocks & gems from broken jewelry. The possibilities are endless after you buy gold & silver ring blanks online. Several colors of faux pearls are available too.😇
