This beautiful pendant features a large, black Tahitian pearl carved to resemble a flower, with a yellow gold inlay lining the large indentation, and a small white diamond bright cut set in the center. It can be purchased along with matching earrings or on its own, and you can view or try it on any time by visiting our Bellevue, WA showroom in person.
Both of these pieces are part of the Galatea collection we carry here at Joseph Jewelry, and they represent well the tradition of innovation and creative usage of materials that are the hallmarks of work by this designer. All of these designs make great use of light and reflection, while combining a range of materials to continue to push the boundaries of what’s possible in fine jewelry design.
Carved Tahitian Pearl
The main pendant body in this piece is made up of an 11mm black Tahitian pearl that’s been carved to resemble a rose. These types of pearls are generally larger than others, making them a good choice for a piece like this which requires such alteration of the pearl’s surface. The rich black color is another unique feature of Tahitian pearls, and this helps to distinguish the design as well while also adding a striking color contrast in relation to the other elements used.

Pendant Design and Diamond Accent
The larger indentation in the center of the pearl is lined with 14k yellow gold, producing a warm glow that contrasts with the dark pearl surrounding it on several levels. At the very center of the indentation, a 0.02 carat round white diamond is bright cut set, and its brilliant white sparkle stands out despite its small size thanks to the contrast with the surrounding materials.
At the top of the pearl, a loop of metal connects the body of the pendant to the tapered yellow gold bale, and the use of yellow gold here acts as a unifying feature. The bale design also helps to highlight the details of the pendant below, as its smooth, polished surface provides a point of contrast to that of the intricately textured pearl.
