Etta’s Grey Pearl Necklace With A Reversible Gold Marquise Box Clasp Set With Diamonds And Rubies
Part 1 – Side View
These pearls belong to Etta and were commissioned by her as a way to rework a collection of sentimental pieces of jewellery!
Etta liked the shapes of my ‘Marquise Collection’ and my ‘curls’ so I began to think about how to use these forms in a stone-set clasp.We had three colours of gold to work with – white, yellow and red – and we had some rubies and diamonds which had come out of a sentimental ring belonging to Etta’s mother. These were my first ‘set of ingredients’ – very rich colours, yellows, whites and reds.
I decided to make the piece reversible so that I could feature combinations of the colours of golds on each side mixed with combinations of diamonds and rubies. We then choose a fabulous strand of chunky graduating pale grey South Sea pearls as the perfect complement to the vibrant colours in the clasp.
This image gives a glimpse of one side of the clasp – it shows how chunky the clasp is – this side features a white central twist curl set with a diamond and the red and yellow golds as highlights set with rubies.
This piece is designed to be worn at the front, back or at either side and creates a different shape depending which side of the clasp is visible.
A fabulous way to modernise ‘old’ jewellery and give it a completely new life!!!
