This elegant pendant is in a shape reminiscent of a dog tag, and it features an inscribed quote with a single flush set blue sapphire at the bottom. It was created for a client from Hockessin, DE, who asked us to come up with something special for his late wife’s nephew that included the quote she had chosen for him.
Although he couldn’t visit us personally in our Bellevue, WA showroom, we communicated with him through the online workroom created for his project to share our designs and get his feedback. In this way, we presented him with several options, and he eventually settled on this combination of features for an understated, masculine look.
Our client didn’t have, at first, a clear idea of the shape he wanted for the pendant. We suggested the dog tag shape, and he agreed it was a good choice. He also decided he liked the more angular design rather than the rounded dog tag shape, and so that is what we used as the base of the piece.
The quote inscribed on the pendant was provided by our client, and it’s presented in a clear script that makes it easy to read.
There are many ways to work gemstones into your design, and this is a good example of an accent stone that doesn’t dominate the piece but makes its presence felt nonetheless. The stone in question is a round blue sapphire that the client wanted to include to represent his wife’s signature, and we placed it at the end of the quote.
Its beautiful blue color contrasts just enough with the 14k white gold of the pendant to make it definitely noticeable. But its small size and the flush setting used ensure that it doesn’t overshadow the other design elements of the piece. Design Your Own Jewelry
