(item # 101181)
This elegant pendant features a cushion cut blue zircon surrounded by a halo of diamonds, all set in beautiful white gold. It was created as part of a matching gift set for a client from Bellevue, WA to go with earrings #101176, and we worked closely with him throughout the design process to ensure we got every detail of both pieces exactly to his liking.
The lovely blue-green color of the blue zircon used in this pendant is the perfect complement to the silvery 18k white gold used in the setting. The stone seen here is just over 6.5 carats and cut in a slightly rectangular cushion shape, which gives the pendant a nice balance.
Zircon is one of the most ancient gems, and it’s found in several different varieties and colors. Blue zircon in particular is associated with strength and well-being generally, as well as love and happiness in your relationship.
Enhancing both the symbolic meaning and the appearance of the zircon in this piece are accent diamonds that frame the main stone in a slightly squared halo. These are shared prong set, and that helps add to the vintage appearance of the piece.
There is also a larger diamond in a four prong setting atop the bail, right where the pendant connects to the chain, and this stone’s sparkling white contrasts perfectly with the bright blue-green of the zircon, while its round shape balances the larger stone’s slightly squared outline nicely.
Behind the halo of accent diamonds, a white gold basket ensures the zircon will stay securely in place. But this design element isn’t without significance either, as the sides of the basket are made up of a delicate hand-made filigree in an S shape running all the way around. This extra touch helps give the piece an added elegance, and it also offers an opening for added symbolism, as our expert craftsmen can customize this type of filigree into any one of a variety of shapes that may hold special meaning for you.
