Whether you’re shopping for a trendy fashionista or a casual-chic sophisticate, we have the perfect diamond necklace or pendant to complement any wardrobe, style or budget. If she delights in the romance of vintage styling, she will be head over heels for this timeless beauty, the Fancy Emerald Cut Pendant created by designer, Chris Wolfsberg.
Talented designer, Chi Galatea Huynh, uses hand carved pearls in his artistic pearl collection. He inserts a piece of turquoise or precious gemstone into an oyster, which then builds a pearl around it, and then, when the pearl is ready, Huynh masterfully cuts away part of the pearl to reveal the intrinsic beauty of the gem hidden inside. The result is a breathtaking and refreshing twist on the classic pearl. You will be in awe when you see his Fabulous Carved Tahitian Pearl Pendant, showcasing a round diamond nestled into a black Tahitian pearl setting, inspired by the plumeria blossom. And if that wasn’t jaw-dropping enough, the Galatea Pearl Pendant with Turquoise Gemstone is unlike anything you’ve ever seen before, with a turquoise gemstone peeking out of a hand-carved black pearl, creating a petal-shaped effect. She will feel lucky to be the owner of this instant classic, the Diamond in a Pearl Carved Slide Necklace, which features a white freshwater pearl, hand-carved into a “Luck Daisy” motif, finished with a round diamond placed in the center. Galatea also has a patented method called DavinChi(™) that allows gemstones to absorb color and light. A remarkable result of his technique is the "DavinChi Cut" Amethyst Pendant with its kaleidoscope sparkle.
