Pleased as punch to share photos of my new Jessica McCormack-inspired sapphire pendant!

My boyfriend bought me this stone a few years back. I had always wanted to set in a Georgian, Colette setting. When I took it to a jeweller, he went ahead and set it in a terrible, basic setting. I was horrified and vowed to avoid any custom work for the foreseeable future. The necklace sat unloved in my box.

Fast forward to 2020, I finally found a jeweller I trusted to bring the vision to life. I took the plunge and got exactly what I wanted. I had talked to Seiko and he quoted me at 3x what I ended up paying locally, which was another happy point for me.

Your new setting is leagues better!! So glad you finally get to enjoy it.
Did you previous jeweller not show you what setting they were intending to do for your pendant before they did it??

No, it was a truly awful experience. He didn’t charge me much but it put a bad taste in my mouth. I never returned.

Aw man, I wish I had seen this earlier! I passed on a heart-shaped stone because I couldn't think of how I'd like to set it. Thank you for sharing your project with us. Adding this to my inspiration pics =)2
