Yellow Gold Suite Transformation!
Having received a 3 piece suite of yellow gold jewelry as a gift, this client did not care for the dark 22 karat color and only wore white gold jewelry. Additionally, she was hoping to add some diamonds, to coordinate with her existing diamond earrings and pendants. She also preferred only the star necklace, over the bracelet and earrings, as a piece she saw herself wearing. So the “makeover process” began! 4 new white gold bars were cast and set with diamonds, to be centered at the front of the necklace, with links removed from the back, to better fit the client’s throat. All of the stars on the necklace were high polished to a bright finish, to give a contrast between the bar stations, which had a brushed finish. The entire necklace then received a white rhodium plating to change the stars and remaining bar links to white!
Deciding to give the bracelet & earring set to her daughter, and since the daughter likes to mix both white and yellow gold in her jewelry wardrobe, the stars were high polished to a bright finish and rhodium plated white, to make the “pop” and give a drastic contrast between the bar stations, which remained in brushed yellow gold, mixing color + texture. Now mother & daughter can each enjoy their distinctive new pieces!
