Lapis & Sapphire Pendant

December 2018
Lapis lazuli, sapphire, 14 karat yellow gold

A client and I designed this pendant as a holiday gift for his wife. It couldn't be too outlandish, as she's a petite woman who tends towards conservative dress, but it needed to pop nonetheless. We chose the lapis cabochon as the centerpiece because she likes deep blues rounded lines, and set it in a scalloped bezel to further emphasize the ovoid theme and to appeal to her affinity for ornate borders. Finally, we added a 3mm sapphire accent in the bail for even deeper blues and some movement.
