I had some jewelry I was no longer crazy about... and I asked Maytal to help me create a fabulous new necklace. (Nothing more fun than a little recycling of old, boring jewelry.)

I had NO idea what to do! Maytal is wonderful, since she is so incredibly full of ideas. After ripping out photos from magazines, and spending months thinking about what I''d love to keep forever - I saw a necklace that she happened to make for herself and I fell absolutely in love with it. So I asked that she make me one just like it. (Thankfully, I live near her and could meet with her on a few occasions.)

Basically, I had some melee and a 1.22ct radiant to play with.

The workmanship is stunning. And I consider it a future heirloom piece.

She was so incredibly sweet and patient with me. I adore her.

First photo is of my necklace sitting pretty on its pouch. Pictures just don''t do this baby justice. (There is some kitty fur on the pouch, however this was not included with the necklace
)

hi kittenkat!

oh all your jewelry is stunning!!! i think your ring is absolutely gorgeous--

can you please tell me the jewelers you trust for pinks (i''d love to get a pink halo of my own), and also- do stones face up whiter or yellower next to pink diamonds in rose gold? i am very sensetive to color and want to make sure it won''t turn out noticeably tinted.

Thanks!!

That is a stunning necklace. I would be so excited! Maytal did my engagement ring for me. I agree, she''s so great to work with.

Hi bluescharm,

Not KittenKat, but I do have a pink diamond halo set in rose gold. I don''t notice it affecting the center diamond as far as lending any tint to it. It looks like its normal color. (my center stone is a G) Maytal got my pink diamonds for me.
