A Jewellery design a day
Pave set emerald pendant
Round brilliant cut and pear-shaped emeralds set in black rhodium plated 18ct white gold.
Pave set emeralds can look amazing in black rhodium plated white gold and although I will admit to generally prefering Tsavorites or Tourmalines over Emerlads, they remain the most well-known green stone. Leading British jeweller Stephen Webster uses pave set emeralds set in his stargazer collection ( see below) and it generally allows for the colour of the stones to be more dominant than if they were set in a brighter white gold or ,as always used to be the case for Emeralds and most coloured stones, in yellow gold
You’ll notice in the last image that today’s design is on the same page as some other design with the same shape. For an exercise like ‘ a jewellery design a day’ it simply saves paper to try out a few different designs on the same piece of paper but this would not be acceptable to present to a client. I see pages like this as experimentation pages and don’t be surprised to see elements from these designs popping up in later d, some of which will be fully fledged presentation standard paint ups.
