This is an elegant 18k yellow gold 20mm Crownwork® half ball pendant with pave black diamonds in oxidized silver. Oxidized silver has a beautiful historic feel for jewelry ( think Austro-Hungarian empire ) and is a wonderful contrast to gold. It looks rich and strong and as a setting material it’s soft and easy to bezel stones in deep. The bales on our pendants/charms have a beautiful etching detail on them, they give the wearer the ability to wear their piece on different chains or use them as a charm on a bracelet. They are designed to sit at the front of the piece so they won’t snag your clothes.
Black Diamonds get their color from the large clouds of minute mineral inclusions that extend throughout the stone, usually graphite, pyrite or hematite. Most black diamonds are opaque and have an almost metallic luster. However, some may have a translucent “salt-and-pepper” appearance. Some diamonds with a black face-up color may even have a dark brown or dark green body color, when viewed from the side. It symbolizes purity, harmony, love, and prosperity. It is the birthstone for August babies and the zodiac stone for Sagittarius. It is the traditional wedding anniversary present celebrating sixty years.
