(item # 103527)
This elegant pendant features an emerald cut ruby bar set at the end of a narrow strip of white gold and above a small round diamond, which is also bar set. It was created for a client from Redmond, WA, and we made another pendant for her at the same time that used alexandrite in place of the ruby.
The client provided the diamonds for each pendant, and she had initially asked to see renderings of this design with the ruby along with a similar one with a pearl as the main stone. This second pendant was for her granddaughter, and since she didn’t like the look of the pearl, she decided to go with the alexandrite instead. Design Your Own Jewelry
Ruby and Diamond
The centerpiece of this pendant is a 1.24 carat emerald cut ruby, and it’s bar set in 14k white gold, oriented lengthwise. The sides of the ruby extend beyond the margins of the setting, making it the widest point of the pendant. The white gold at the top and the bottom does cover the flat surface on both ends, providing a nice frame and a satisfying balance to the design.
Directly below the ruby, a 0.07 carat round diamond is bar set, and its diameter is exactly the same as the width of the setting. The client provided this stone, and its brilliant white sparkle, along with its perfect curves, produces a striking contrast with the rich red and clean lines of the larger ruby above. Pendants
Pendant Design and Customization Options
The top of the pendant that extends up from the ruby consists of a strip of white gold about twice as long as the ruby. This doubles as the bale, and it’s open on the sides to allow the chain to pass straight through.
Customizing this pendant could involve any number of modifications, from using a different combination of gemstones to switching to another type of metal. Adding some custom hand engraving on the flat front surface of the bale is an option as well, as is changing the cut and setting style of the gemstones used.
