Diamond Pendant

If the diamond in this pendant was a cat, it would’ve lived three of it’s lives already.  It began as one of a pair of stud earrings.  One of the earrings became this ring (center) and the other became another ring… which I don’t think I ever took a photo of.

I’m not sure why, but I never took to that ring.  Since one of the perks of being a jewelry maker is being able to re-use materials, I sawed the band off the ring and came up with this pendant:

It’s hand fabricated in 18k yellow gold and bezel set.  I strung it on this very pretty sterling silver chain (I love mixing 18k gold with sterling) and added an 18k gold hand fabricated clasp:

I feel certain that this diamond has at least one more life to live, but for now I think I’ll enjoy this necklace.

  1. the necklace is beautiful. I also love the stacking rings (and remember them well). Your bezel setting technique looks to have improved. It’s very contemporary. I like it.
