We created this pendant for, well, Toni. Made in .925 sterling silver and a script style name, this nicely weighted pendant makes a great splash when completed with a round brilliant diamond accent over the i.
As a special gift for Valentine’s Day this year, our client wanted to gift his valentine with something unique. We started by creating a series of intertwined hearts in 14 karat white gold. We then added her favorite colors using rubies, blue and yellow sapphires, and diamonds all of which were sized to the width of each heart and then carefully bead set.
Our client came to us looking to add an Ace of Hearts pendant to her collection. Few people understand just how hard it is to create perfectly flat jewelry. Every slight imperfection is magnified because it stands out so much against the flat areas around it. We start with a piece of gold almost twice as thick as the desired finished size and begin the long process of sanding and filing the surface to perfect ‘flatness’. Created with 18k white gold, the pendant features three small, heart shaped, diamonds set in delicate bezels.
This special pendant is a memorial piece to remember a loved one. We started with a clean photograph of the person we were to recreate, then Kelly spent time converting the 2D image into a 3D model that we could use in our 3D model grower. Once grown we crafted the pendant in 14k yellow gold, the portrait is done with a soft, satin finish to bring out the intricate details. The pendant is adorned with over 2 carats of round brilliant diamonds meticulously set with a French pavé style.
