by mrs-b » May 4, 2018 A month or so ago I sold a gorgeous VC H&A stone to a wonderful PS'er (and I will be posting photos of her new ring for her later!) This has enabled me to make a major push to get all my projects dunzo! I contacted DKJ and spent some time with the lovely Amy Phillips commissioning 12 new pieces. They'll be coming one at a time over the next 2 months and, rather than hog the SMTB forum, I thought I'd post all of them here as they arrive. The first one out of the gate is my re-set pearl and diamond earrings. These earrings were previously set on shepherd's hooks, but as I've grown older and my face has drooped, I've come to prefer earrings that don't hang so low, visually elongating my face even more. (Yes, I know - my new gold and diamond drops are 3". There is no explaining that, except to say they're beautiful!) I asked to have the shepherd's hooks removed and for pear shaped diamonds to be put in their place. The earrings are now studs. The pearls (South Sea, AAA grade) in the photos are roughly 14 and a half mm long, so all up the earrings will be around 1.25". I'll post more photos when they arrive - but this is what Amy sent me last night. The round diamonds are BGD Signature cut - F color, VS1 clarity, 17 points each. The pears are G IF, 32 points each, cut as a pair and perfectly matched. All up, 1.66 ctw in 18kt rhodium plated white gold with 14.5mm AAA South Sea pearl drops. Veeeeerry happy with how these turned out!
