(item # 101969)
This exquisite pendant features a carved freshwater pearl suspended from a white gold chain, accented by a round emerald set in yellow gold. It can be purchased on its own or as part of a set that also includes matching earrings, and both of these are part of the Galatea collection we carry in our Bellevue, WA showroom.
This designer is known for utilizing traditional elements in unconventional ways, often in order to explore floral or organic themes. This piece is no exception, and it’s also emblematic of the way the designer incorporates light in interesting ways to produce a distinctive look.
The main body of this pendant is composed of a 10mm freshwater pearl that’s been carved into the shape of a lily flower. The flowing lines of the carving produce an elegant and organic feel for the piece that are directly inline with the natural themes it explores. The carving also creates an undulating surface that reflects light in many different ways, a detail that helps to highlight the multifaceted beauty of the pearl itself.
Rather than rely on a separately attached bale, this piece utilizes a hold drilled right through the top half of the pearl to connect it to the chain. This arrangement ensures that the piece hangs properly at all times when worn, and it also keeps the visual focus squarely on the pendant body. Pendants
Emerald and Yellow Gold
In the center of the front of the pearl, a small circle of yellow gold holds a round emerald in a six prong setting. These two elements bring a splash of color and a striking contrast, both with the pearl and with each other, adding a dynamic quality to the design. Their colors also enhance the floral themes of the piece overall, and they contribute some classical warmth as well.
