Diamond and Sapphire Necklace
This lovely customer came in with a Sapphire and Diamond Drop Earring and Necklace Set, and also 2 rings, one of which featured a stunning diamond.
When coming up with ideas, Jo mentioned the idea of creating separate pendants, which could be worn all together, or interchanged. After the customer agrees, Jo can finalise the design.
The first step is to unset the stones from all the jewellery, then they can be laid out to see the composition and see if they balance well, and they do!
The next step is to make the components, to turn these loose stones into a statement necklace! First, the settings for all the stones are hand carved in wax, to ensure a snug fit and cast in 9ct white gold. Then the wire and tube is assembled for the pendants, see a shot from the bench to see the everything lined up.
Once the pendants were finalised, and ensured they all sat perfectly against each other, the customers Sapphires and Diamonds can be set.
After a final clean, polish and rhodium plate, the final piece is complete!
