Here at James & Lily we have a passion for custom jewelry. An old friend reached out to me about making a treasured Father’s ring into a diamond pendant for his daughter and I was very excited about this project! We created this piece using the recycled gold for the original ring because of it’s deep sentimental value.
Here are a few images of the journey of this piece. From a gents ring, into a gorgeous Amethyst and diamond pendant.
First, I sketched a few options for the client to choose from, then pulled out the center amethyst and had it re-polished to help bring out it’s natural beauty. The gold was recycled and used to create the boarder, allowing space to set the diamond halo. A backing was also applied to allow for a personal engraving.
This piece was a joy to make and our master jeweler, Paul Kim really out did himself as always with the stunning setting job!
