This dazzling pendant features a pear shaped blue sapphire prong set in yellow gold, with a bezel set round diamond above it. It was created for a client from Sammamish, WA, who came into our Bellevue, WA showroom personally to get the custom design process underway. After discussing their style and feature preferences with them, our team put together a CAD model of the piece we proposed to make, and they quickly approved it to move into production.

Saphire and Diamond
The main focus of this design is the large blue sapphire at the bottom. It’s 9.80 carats and pear shaped, with a rich blue color that contrasts perfectly with the 14k yellow gold it’s set in. The stone is positioned with its corner end up, leaving the wider bottom portion to hang down lowest and balance the design.
Five prongs cradle this gorgeous stone, and the top prong attaches to a metal link that joins the sapphire to the bezel setting above. This is also made from yellow gold, and it holds a 1.01 carat round brilliant cut diamond. The dazzling white of the smaller stone adds another layer of contrast to the piece, and it centers the sapphire nicely.
The bezel setting connects directly to the chain at points in the 10 o’clock and 2 o’clock positions on the side. This keeps the pendant from moving freely on the chain, helping to maintain it in the proper position at all times when worn. A simple basket protects the back of the sapphire as well, and this is open enough to allow plenty of light, helping to maximize the wonderful shine of the larger stone. Pendants
There are may ways you can go about customizing a piece like this. Using a different color or shape for the sapphire at the bottom is a good place to start. Sapphires come in many different shades, and this gives you the opportunity to work in a favorite or otherwise significant color. You may also decide to go with all diamonds, or you might want to switch the positions of the stones, with a large white diamond at the bottom and a smaller round sapphire at the top.
Other possibilities include using a different type of metal, mixing up the setting combinations, and adding some milgrain detailing around the bezel setting to bring some vintage flair to the design. No matter what you choose, though, our team will work closely with you throughout the custom design process to ensure you come away with exactly the piece you’d been envisioning.
