Graduation Gift Makeover
With a college graduation fast approaching, this client wished to pass down a family jewel to her niece, to commemorate this special occasion. The diamond pendant had previously belonged to the graduate’s aunt, but was in need of updates for a fashionable young girl to wear.
The diamond was unset from its old yellow gold basket setting and weighed. The customer was thrilled to learn it weighed over a half carat! A modern, smooth bezel design was selected in white gold, which kept the emphasis on the diamond, while making it look even larger than its size. A sturdy white gold chain was attached, with an adjustable link to shorten the necklace, to be worn at 2 different lengths. The end result was a new classic piece of jewelry, with a meaningful past, to congratulate this graduate on her special day!
