A modern heirloom

Our client contacted us to commission a pendant designed with stones inherited from her family. With diamond marquises cascading down from a blue sapphire, the pendant was a test in contemporary design.

The marquises, oval in shape and traditional in style, called for a contemporary interpretation. We worked with our client, presenting three compositions for the marquise waterfall, each of which meant calculating and incorporating the marquises’ unique dimensions. And, with an eye for design, the client requested an original bail – the element of a pendant often forgotten.

The finished pendant was a modern memento of family heirlooms.
