This elegant pendant features a cabochon black opal surrounded by a braided design in white gold, accented with diamonds and custom filigree. It was created to go with a custom wedding band #100574 for a couple from Kirkland, WA, who wanted a special piece for the bride to wear on their wedding day.
They worked with us primarily in person in our Bellevue, WA showroom to iron out the details of the piece and ensure we had everything just right. Thanks to our talented design team and skilled artisans, we were able to produce this one-of-a-kind pendant, and they were very happy with the result.
The black opal in this pendant is quite rare, and it was custom cut into two stones so that the second piece could be used in the men’s wedding band that makes up the other part of this set. It is cabochon cut with a slightly tapered shape, and it’s framed beautifully by the 14k white gold bezel setting.
The diamonds used here are worked in subtly, but they have a huge impact on the overall appearance of the piece. They also help to create a link to the rest of the wedding set, as diamonds are traditionally used in wedding and engagement rings due to the overtones of love, purity, and beauty they carry with them.
Tapering round diamonds are bright cut set in the bail of this piece, adding a nice bit of sparkle above the main pendant. And the braided design surrounding the opal also has round diamonds burnish set in alternating spaces. The use of this type of setting creates a delicate sparkling effect without the diamonds really jumping out and overshadowing the opal.
The sides of the pendant are filled in with an ornate hand-made filigree, whose curves complement the braided border of the front setting. This type of detail is completed by our skilled artisans, and because it’s done by hand, we can replicate many different types of shapes and designs. Customizing the filigree is a good way to include a feature of personal significance to your custom piece. Design Your Own Jewelry
