Tension Set Diamond
The lone gemstone in this pendant is a 1.10 carat round brilliant cut diamond, and it’s tension set right at the bottom of the 18k white gold ring that makes up the body of the piece. The diamond is wider than the ring, allowing it to extend significantly beyond the metal on either side, and this helps to reinforce its central position in the design.
The ring that makes up the body of this pendant is wide and domed, with a smooth, polished surface that highlights its elegant curves. The only break in the ring occurs right at the bottom where the diamond sits, and the perfectly round shape of the stone echoes the contours of the ring nicely.
The chain passes through an opening in the back of the top of the ring, eliminating the need for a separate bale. That design detail keeps the focus solidly on the ring, and it enables the pendant to move freely on the chain at the same time. Pendants
If you think you’d like something similar to this piece yet unique, there are many small changes you can make that will have a significant impact on the overall look and feel of the pendant. For example, you could experiment with different metal and gemstone combinations to introduce some contrast, or perhaps to work in a stone or color with special significance to you.
Adding custom hand engraving on the body of the pendant is another way to introduce a personal touch, and this can be customized in a number of ways to better suit your personal style. The engraving would also bring a more classical feel to the piece, and you may want to adjust the setting style of the diamond as well to make sure you get just the look you’re after.
