This gorgeous pendant features two pear-shaped loops lined with small round diamonds, with a round Tahitian pearl suspended in the center. The design was developed for a client from Edmonds, WA, who purchased the pearl initially and then asked us to design the perfect piece to display it.
We worked with her online, over the phone, and in person in our Bellevue, WA showroom to iron out all of the details of her piece. In particular, she used our online workroom to share images of her inspiration pieces. Design Your Own Jewelry
The shape and proportions of this pendant are all about weight and balance, and the right mix is perfectly achieved thanks to the way the platinum loops curve gracefully around the pearl. The length of the piece holding the pearl is also an important part of the equation, and the proportions are exactly in line with the rest of the piece.
Tying everything together is the bale at the top, which is made of two smaller loops of platinum lined with diamonds. These mirror the larger loops of the body of the piece, and they also allow the chain to pass through, making it possible for the client to use the pendant with different chains, which was something that was very important to her.
Pearl and Diamonds
The pearl itself is a 14mm AAA quality Tahitian pearl, and it exhibits a wonderful, complex mix of colors. It is primarily black, but the sheen on its surface features hints of a diverse array that includes pink, green, gold, bronze, and blue.
In contrast, the diamonds used to accent it sparkle beautifully in their bright cut settings, and this adds dramatic light to the design. Their brilliant white perfectly balances the deep, rich color of the pearl, and that only reinforces the beauty of the overall proportions and layout of the pendant.
