This elegant pendant is in the shape of a D, with bright cut set diamonds of varying sizes running along its front and up one side. The pendant itself is made from white and yellow gold, and it attaches directly to a white gold chain, with bezel set diamond accents integrated into it. The piece was created for a client from Kent, WA, and she provided the diamonds while along with her vision for the design. Design Your Own Jewelry
The shape of the pendant is an ornate letter D, and its specific design held special meaning for the client. The front half of it is made from 14k white gold, and so if it is viewed straight on, that silvery brilliance is all that can be seen. At a slight angle, however, it becomes clear that the back half of the pendant is made from 14k yellow gold, creating a subtle two-tone look that’s quite striking.
The pendant attaches directly to the chain through a loop on the top tip of the D, as well as one in the middle of the upward slope. These fixed connections keep the pendant in place by not allowing it to move freely on the chain. Using these types of connections also allowed us to forgo a bale, which kept the D as the main focus of the piece.
The front of the D is covered with round diamonds of varying sizes, all of which are bright cut set in white gold. The diamonds are arranged so that they fill the space available perfectly, and they were provided by the client to add even more personal significance to the piece. A line of small diamonds also runs up the straight side of the D, bringing some unexpected sparkle that’s only exposed when the pendant is viewed from an angle. Pendants
Because we had two somewhat larger diamonds left over after laying out the rest in the D design, we suggested integrating them into the chain. The client agreed she liked the look, and so we worked in the two round diamonds bezel set in yellow gold along one side of the chain to complement the asymmetrical nature of the pendant body.
