(item # 103526)
This striking pendant features an emerald cut Alexandrite bar set in the center, with a small bar set diamond below it, and a solid strip of white gold above that extends up to form the bale. It was created for a client from Redmond, WA, and we made a matching pendant with ruby in the place of the alexandrite for her at the same time.
This piece was a gift for her granddaughter, who had initially requested pearl and diamond as the gemstones to be used. After seeing the CAD model of the pendant with the pearl in the main position, however, the client decided that the more angular emerald cut worked better in this design, and so she switched to the alexandrite as the center stone.

Alexandrite and Diamond
The centerpiece of this pendant is a 1.12 carat emerald cut alexandrite, and it’s bar set in 14k white gold near the bottom of the piece. The Alexandrite exhibits a beautiful purple color indoors, while it appears green in daylight, and this color-changing property is one of the main reasons the client chose the stone.
Just below the alexandrite, a small round diamond is bar set. It provides a lovely white sparkle that contrasts nicely with the rich color of the larger stone, and that’s complemented nicely by the shine of the white gold it’s set in. The alexandrite is positioned to sit lengthwise in the piece, and with the small stone centered directly below it, the pendant achieves a satisfying balance. Pendants
Pendant Design and Customization Options
Above the alexandrite, a long, thin strip of white gold extends upward from the margin of the bar setting. This strip is nearly twice as long as the main stone, and it’s open on the sides, allowing the chain to pass directly through. That detail allows the design to maintain its integrity without the interruption a separate bale may have caused visually, and it lets the pendant move freely on the chain as well.
