The centerpiece of this pendant is a 1.34 carat amethyst with a rich purple color. It’s cushion shaped and cut to exhibit a checkerboard pattern in the facets that accentuates its lovely shine. It’s held in the compass position by four white gold prongs that meet it at its rounded corners, and this positioning gives the pendant itself its shape. Pendants
Diamond Halo and Accents
A halo of split prong set diamonds surrounds the center amethyst, adding their brilliant white sparkle to the mix as well as some classical flair. The diamonds are all small and round, allowing them to frame the larger stone perfectly without taking away from its position as the focus of the piece.
The additional light the diamonds reflect up onto the amethyst also helps to increase its brilliance, and the split prong setting keeps the amount of visible metal around the stones to a minimum. The bale attaches directly to the top corner of the halo, and a line of split prong set diamonds also runs up the front of this, helping to give the piece a uniform look and keep the focus solidly on the main body of the pendant.
