Sarahs Peach Pearl Necklace With Oval Box Clasp Set With A Padparadscha Sapphire

This is piece I made years ago for another ‘Dr Sarah’ featuring one of my early stone set box-clasps.

We started by choosing this vibrant Padparadscha Sapphire which is a lovely peachy-pink colour and I set it in 18ct yellow gold to highlight its colour.

The oval shape of the stone informed the design of the clasp which is oval. Made in silver and box constructed so its nice and chunky with 18ct yellow gold granules.

In this necklace the stone ‘hooks’ into the larger oval shape to form the hook-in clasp. This one is strung on a lovely strand of peachy pearls.

Although it looks like a simple design, I remember spending hours working out how I was going to get two oval box-shapes to hook in and out of each other and have the hidden locking feature on the back! I’ve perfected this mechanism many times since then!!!
