Diamond and White Gold Gorgeous Curly Wurly Necklace

I love the idea that the jewellery I make is worn everyday and becomes loved and part of someones life…..

However there are times when something special is needed. This is one of those pieces that you don’t wear to Sainsburys!

The brief was loose “I want something to make her feel really special” So this is what I made…….. there are over 300 diamonds all hand set, the focal diamond is a 1.4ct “transition cut” stone, this means that is was cut in Edwardian times before the brilliant cut had been invented and the traditional old cut was a thing of the past.It lends a vintage feel to a piece that has been made with very traditional methods but when you see it it feels modern.

The following year the same customer came back with another brief for me and bought the Diamond and White Gold Curly Wurly Earrings for his very lucky Wife!
