(item # 101645)
This elegant pendant features a round brilliant cut diamond surrounded by a double halo of bright cut set diamonds and accented with hand-made filigree. The design was developed in consultation with a client from Carmel, IN with whom we have worked on several custom projects over the years. He had us create this pendant as a special gift for his wife, and the delicate and intricate design elements included make for a truly classic look.
Center Diamond and Halo
The diamond in the center of this piece is a 0.60 carat round brilliant cut stone, and it’s displayed beautifully in a four prong setting made of 14k white gold. Surrounding this stone is a double halo of bright cut set diamonds, which bring their own sparkle to the piece while also reflecting more light back up onto the larger diamond, which helps to intensify its brilliance.
Diamonds are frequently used in pieces commemorating a special event or milestone in a relationship or marriage due to their association with romantic love, unparalleled beauty, purity, and fidelity. Their extreme hardness also lends itself well to this type of design, as they’re unlikely to chip or crack when subjected to the rigors of daily wear.
The sides of the pendant were solid gold in our original design, but our client requested that we replace that with filigree instead, which adds a nice layer of complexity to the piece. It also gives the pendant a bit of classical flair, as opposed to the more contemporary look of the smooth white gold surface.
Our expert artisans create filigree like this by hand, and that gives us wonderful flexibility when it comes to the types and styles of designs we can work in. This is a great way to include a special symbol in your piece, or you can work in your initials for an intensely personal touch.
There are many ways to adjust this design to make it more your own. For instance, you could change the filigree on the side to something with particular significance for you. Or you could place a birthstone or favorite gemstone in the center rather than the diamond.
Another option might be to go with a different metal like rose or yellow gold, which would take the piece in another direction as well. But whatever type of look you’re after, our professional team will work with you until your piece reflects your vision in every way. Design Your Own Jewelry
