Pendant Description

This elegant pendant features a Quahog pearl prong set at the center in white gold, surrounded by milgrain and filigree accents. It was created for a client from Issaquah, WA, who visited our Bellevue, WA showroom in person to discuss the type of piece she was envisioning. Design Your Own Jewelry

After learning a little bit about what she was looking for, we created a 3D mock up that we shared with her online. She provided some feedback and asked to see a few different versions before settling on this one. Just to be sure she really loved the design, we grew a wax model for her to come in and see before she gave her final approval to move into production.

Quahog Pearl

Quahog pearls are produced by a certain species of clams that are usually found up and down the east coast of the United States. They come in a wide variety of colors, including lilac, purple, and black, many of which are not produced by any other type of mollusk. This understandably makes them much sought-after and a wonderful centerpiece to a special piece of fine custom jewelry.

The pearl in this pendant is 5.3mm across, and it’s prong set in 14k white gold. Its rich black color contrasts beautifully with the silvery shine of the metal, and the points of the claw prongs holding it in place provide a perfect counterpoint to the perfectly round surface of the pearl.

Pendant Design

The body of the pendant features three points, with one at the top and two at the bottom. In the middle of each side where the prongs begin, the curve of the border is pinched in, creating almost a scalloped effect. The chain also joins the pendant right where the two top prongs originate, giving a nice balance to the design.

The pendant we initially created had four points on the outside and four prongs holding the pearls. However, the client asked to see a model with three prongs instead, which changed the shape of the outer pendant as well, and this was the design she eventually decided to go with. The basket behind the pearl features a custom hand-made scroll filigree that adds a nice bit of vintage flair to the piece.

I came to Joseph Jewelry from a friend's recommendation and I'm glad I did! I had a special pearl that I'd recently found in a seafood dish (I know, crazy) and wanted to showcase it without drilling into it. The team at Joseph's worked closely with me on the design and edited it throughout the process, with a clear and concise system of approval. I'm thrilled with my new necklace and wouldn't change a thing!
