I bought these older(?)diamond studs at an estate sale last year, but I never really liked them. They are high quality diamonds in Stuller settings.
Today I finally figured out what to do with them. I put them together to form a pendant. These diamonds are fiery, but hard to capture with cell phone camera!

Well, I only paid $18 for the earrings. I really didn't know what I was gonna do with them, but the diamonds were nice and I couldn't walk away!

Beautiful! It reminds me of a hanging bouquet of dried babies breath flowers!!

Are they set in SS or gold?
I'm only asking because they look like white gold but ive only known you to work with SS so either they're unique and are set in SS or your skill set was totally undetected by me girly!

Love the pendant now!

The earrings are 14k white gold. The bail that I made is SS. I have no problem mixing things up!
Besides, the metals appear identical. If there are any jewelry rules, I don't play by them!

Excellent. I love how you recycled them into something not only beautiful but totally wearable. Too fussy for earrings but as a pendant - yesssssss

I was absolutely never gonna wear them as earrings. I have .90 TW diamond studs that I wear all the time. I was tired of seeing them languishing in my jewelry box, unworn and unloved!

Once you mentioned that it looked like a dried bouquet, I decided it needed a leaf! So it's a collaboration--Stracci and The Garnet Girl!

Why thank you but honey you did all the heavy lifting!
Btw that leaf was the perfect size/style/placement in my opinion.
