(item # 102571)
This stunning pendant features a black Tahitian pearl suspended from and organic-style white gold bale, accented by turquoise and a diamond. It matches earrings, and you can find both pieces in our Galatea collection any time to visit our Bellevue, WA showroom in person.
This designer is known for innovative use of conventional materials, and this piece is an excellent example of that. The organic themes that are explored here are hallmarks of Galatea jewelry as well, and all of the pieces in our collection push the limits of what is possible in fine jewelry design in different ways. 100% Satisfaction
Carved Black Pearl and Turquoise
The pearl that makes up the body of this piece is Tahitian, and it measures 10mm in diameter. It’s rich, black color is perhaps its most striking characteristic, and these types of pearls are much sought-after because of that feature.
The pearl in this case has a pattern of teardrop shapes carved all the way around, and these are arranged in a staggered pattern that gives the impression that they are droplets of water running down the sides of the pearl. Adding to this theme are the turquoise accents within each carved space that add their intense blue color, creating a lovely contrast with the deep tones of the pearl. Pendants
Bale Design and Diamond Accent
The bale attaches to the top of the pearl through an organically-styled 14k white gold cap that tapers as it extends up, eventually reaching its narrowest point slightly less than half-way to the top. This is also the point at which a single 0.03 carat accent diamond is set, and that small detail provides the perfect counterpoint to the large, dark pearl below. Above the diamond, the bale begins to expand again, widening even more than it had previously as it reaches up to meet the chain.
