Innovating a Beautiful Convertible Pendant

Rubellite Tourmaline Pendant

Hot Pink Tourmaline set in 18KT gold on diamond Riviera  necklace

         Hot Pink Rubellite Tourmaline Pendant, Invisibly hung on diamond Riveria necklace.

This is another of Thomas’ copyrighted, original and innovative creations. This stunning 28.34ct pear shaped hot pink, exceptional rubellite tourmaline is set in four heavy 18KT yellow gold prongs with diamond pave. 

This ingenious pendant can be installed on to a hidden connection on this diamond riviera necklace or on to this diamond pave bail, which allows it to articulate on a chain.

When we were originally approached by our client to design a setting for this tourmaline we assumed we would be doing a more conventional type of setting.  She pushed us after seeing a ring that we have that is set with massive pave prongs. She said “I want that!”  In addition to now being excited about doing some real innovation, we were really motivated to create some drama.  Mysteriously suspending this tourmaline from the diamond riveria necklace, seemingly, without a bail. A look not seen before!
