Sapphire and Ruby
In the center of this piece, a pear shaped pink sapphire is prong set with its rounded end oriented downward. It’s suspended from the body of the pendant by a loop of metal that attaches to the top prong in the setting, and this loop in turn links to another loop that emerges from the inner surface of the platinum ring surrounding the sapphire.
Directly below the sapphire, a heart shaped ruby is chevron prong set in the platinum ring itself, and it extends slightly above and below the metal around it, which helps it stand out. The sapphire and ruby don’t touch, but they’re perfectly aligned, and the orientation of the sapphire combined with the larger proportions of the ruby help to give the pendant a satisfying balance. Their colors also play off of each other nicely, and they both contrast with the brilliant white of the platinum they’re set in. Pendants
Pendant Design and Customization Options
The body of the pendant is composed of a platinum ring that’s widest at the bottom and tapers as it moves upward. It’s narrowest at the top where it meets the bale, and this is also the spot where the ruby connects on the inner surface. The top of the ring is rounded, providing a smooth counterpoint to the cuts of the gemstones, both of which feature some rounded and some angular areas.
To customize this piece, you could choose a different combination of gemstones, and you could adjust the cuts as well to help achieve exactly the look you want. One interesting option could be simply to switch the positions and shapes of the ruby and the sapphire, or you could choose a different color metal to bring a new kind of warmth to the design.
