Bespoke Pearl Pendant
Posted on: 13/02/2018
The brief:To mount a large, 8mm blue-grey pearl into a fancy gold pendant.
The process:A very striking pendant design that really is one-of-a-kind. The customer came to us with a loose, 8mm blue-grey pearl and wanted to be able to wear it in a necklace - and they had certainly done their research! They were able to produce lots of images of jewellery they liked; wrap around rings, earrings and necklaces from all over the internet. Such an intricate setting could not be 'ordered in' so we needed to arrange for a bespoke, handmade mount to be manufactured.
We think this is a really clever design and it would have been a shame to enclose such a magnificent pearl. The customer ideally wanted diamonds and emeralds (this was of course pending costs as cubic zirconias could have been used), and they have been cleverly positioned in the wrap-around loop which we think really elevates the piece of jewellery. The loop of gold hugs the pearl so delicately yet embraces it securely with small, cut-out grooves on the inside. This helps the pearl to sit in place and as with most pearl jewellery, it is glued into place.
All the customer then had to decide was which chain to hang it from!
