Hi All,
Here is yet another recycling project of mine! I had been given this 3 stone diamond ring by my grandmother. It wasn't quite my taste or style so I went about redoing it. She's fine with my choice to remodel. Anyway, I had my trusty B&M jeweler make this lovely pendant for me. It features 2 OEC diamonds (my favorite!!!) the one on the top is a .16 carat I / SI1 and the one on the bottom is a .38 carat I / SI2, both perfectly eye-clean. My entire jewelry collection is platinum and white gold so I decided to branch out and try 14kt rose gold. I really love it! It's very fun for a change. The pendant features the same filagree work on the sides of the piece as the bail but my attempts to get a good photo of it have been unsuccessful thus far.

What did I do with the 3rd diamond in the ring? Ah, well, it was a .16 modern RB so I used it to upgrade the diamond in my silver anklet and used the .10 carat that had been in my anklet to have my jeweler make a "loupe charm" for me. Now I'll be able to pick my loupe out of a crowd, right?! :naughty:

Sterling silver anklet, now with .16 carat diamond as opposed to the .10 carat diamond (before). Hey, 0.06 point is an upgrade, right?! :tongue:

Thank you, all. I have to say, I am really enjoying the rose gold. I have been enjoying it in other PSer's collections and am really enjoying my first piece of rose gold. And, of course, like any true PSer, I'm already trying to strategize how to go about a reset for another piece so I can add more rose gold into my collection! :appl:

I must give my husband credit for coming up with the loupe charm idea. I asked him, "what should I do with my 'leftover' .10 carat diamond?" He said, how about a loupe charm?! He might have been being facetious at the time, but I took his idea and ran with it to my jeweler and they quite happily made the idea a reality!

A lovely project and re-making it in rose gold suits the age of the diamonds! Enjoy wearing all your new pieces.

Thank you, all. I definitely chose the rose gold to suit the age of the diamonds. They are also warmish diamonds - I could see the "I" color in them when they were in the white gold setting. The rose gold does lovely things for the warmth of the stones. It both enhances their color and makes them seem whiter. I realize that is a direct contradiction, but it really does seem to have both effects! :tongue:
