These gorgeous drop earrings feature bar set blue tanzanites at the bottom accented by round diamonds, all of which is framed beautifully by elegant strands of white gold. They were created for a client from Seattle, WA, and we made a matching pendant as well as a matching ring at the same time.
The stones used in this set were provided by the client, and she worked closely with our team, both in person in our Bellevue, WA showroom and online, to design the perfect settings to hold them. The original models we came up with didn’t grab her the way she felt they should, so we produced several more sketches, and she chose the design she wanted to develop from that selection. Design Your Own Earrings
The largest stones in these earrings are rectangular cushion cut blue tanzanites, and the two combined total 2.34 carats. They’re bar set at the bottom of each earring, oriented to sit vertically. Our original models had the tanzanites at an angle, as their counterpart is in the matching pendant. After examining these designs, the client requested that the stones not sit at an angle in the earrings. We provided her with models that had them sitting both vertically and horizontally, and in the end she chose this arrangement. Pendants
Diamond Accents and Earring Design
Just above the tanzanite in each earring, a round brilliant cut diamond is prong set in 14k white gold. Another diamond sits at the top of the earring just below the finding, and these provide a nice contrast in terms of both color and shape to the larger stones below.
Framing all of the gemstones in this set are two lines of white gold that begin at the level of the top of the higher diamond. They curve in dramatically as they pass below this stone, briefly meeting each other before curving out again to straddle the two stones on the bottom of the earring. This created just the type of elegant and minimalist look the client was after, and the matching pendant, while a bit more ornate, still keeps with this basic underlying structure.
