This entrancing pendant features a round diamond bezel set in white gold in the center of a black Tahitian pearl which is carved in a swirling, organic pattern and accented by turquoise. It’s a part of the Galatea collection we carry here at Joseph Jewelry, and it’s available for you to see or try on any time you stop by our Bellevue, WA showroom.
As this piece demonstrates, Galatea designs continually push the limits of what’s possible in fine jewelry creation. They incorporate light and natural themes through innovative uses of conventional materials, and they’re notable for their creativity.
Carved Tahitian Pearl
A large Tahitian pearl makes up the main body of this pendant, and its rich black color produces a striking contrast with the other elements included in the design. The pearl is carved in an organic style, with a circular depression in the center of the front and swirling teardrop-shaped depressions extending out from the circle to wrap around the sides of the pearl. This gives the pendant a dynamic quality when viewed straight on from the front, and it contributes to the overall natural feel of the piece as well. Pendants
Diamond and Turquoise
At the center of the circular depression, a 0.04 carat round diamond is bezel set in 14k white gold, and the metal lines the angled sides of the depression as well. The shiny surface of the white gold serves to reflect more light down onto the diamond, and its highly polished surface also helps intensify the brilliance of the stone.
Each of the teardrop-shaped sections holds an inlay of turquoise, which adds a dynamic contrast to the piece. The turquoise also helps to clarify the carved design, as it stands out dramatically next to the rich, dark surface of the pearl. A hole located just above the middle of the pearl allows the chain to pass straight through the pendant, eliminating the need for a separate bale and ensuring that the pearl is oriented properly at all times. 100% Satisfaction
