This gorgeous pendant features a round blue sapphire prong set in the center, with round diamonds clustered around it forming a halo, and an additional accent diamond lined with milgrain leading up to the white gold bale above. It’s a piece with plenty of classical charm, and it’s also an excellent place to start when you’re trying to develop your own unique design. Design Your Own Jewelry
Center Sapphire and Halo
At the heart of this piece is a 0.60 carat round blue sapphire, and it’s held in place by four prongs made of 14k white gold. The rich blue of the sapphire contrasts wonderfully with the silvery sheen of the metal, as well as with the brilliant sparkle of the diamonds in the surrounding halo. Sapphire and Diamond Engagement Rings
These diamonds are all round and bright cut set, and the 10 in the halo combine with the additional accent diamond above to total 0.37 carats. While the halo follows the contours of the center stone closely on its inner margin, its outer edge curves with the diamonds, creating a scalloped line that gives the pendant as a whole a floral quality.
Pendant Design and Milgrain Beading
Directly above the halo, and slightly behind it, a pear shaped section holds the eleventh diamond in this design. That bridge piece facilitates the transition to the polished white gold bale above, and it elongates the pendant while providing a nice balance to the piece overall. 100% Satisfaction
Milgrain beading lines the outer margin of the halo as well as the pear shaped section, and this gives a more vintage-inspired look to the design. If you were interested in taking that theme further, you could substitute rose gold for the white used in this piece, and the warm tones of that metal would help reinforce the floral overtones of the design as well.
