Pear Shape Diamond Makeover
After inheriting several pieces of dated yellow gold jewelry, this client turned to Diamonds On The Key for “Makeover Inspiration”, to transform these items into something she would wear.
Since the client did not care for yellow gold, white gold was decided for the new custom-made design. The pear shape diamond became the focus for the new piece of jewelry, as it was substantial in size and good quality. A pendant design was selected, with all the other smaller diamonds unset from the bracelet and brooch and sorted by size. Larger diamonds were utilized for the “double diamond halo border”, to be set around the pear shape diamond, for added scale and volume, with the smaller diamonds utilized for the chain.
A computerized CADD design was created to fit all the various size and shape diamonds for the pendant and cast in 14 karat white gold. The smaller diamonds were handset into smooth white gold bezels, laser soldered into the link chain, and the chain connected to the pendant.
The client received a “scrap gold credit” for the old yellow gold, which accounted for 80% of the price of her new necklace, making for a very economical custom Makeover! The client was thrilled!
