We had free reign on design when making this guitar pendant. So we gave a lot of detail. The body and headstock are in 14k yellow gold. The diamond bezeled knobs, pickup, bridge, tuners and neck are in 14k white gold. The music note bail was a fun add on. It came with a 14k gold mini guitar stand.
This piece of jewelry I played with the idea of a ring that can also be worn as a pendant. The secret is in the shank. It has cut outs to except a chain. Besides the functional challenge, the piece needed to have an interesting profile and top view at the same time. A spherical pearl fit the bill. I flush set a couple of diamonds and varied the surface treatment by stone wheeling the top edge.
This is a popular design that we have been doing in remounting a marquise.
The clean lines and modern design freshens up a diamond shape that was very popular in the 80’s/90’s. The fashion pendulum always swings and the marquise may see a revival.
Channel setting the marquise on it’s short side is unconventional. I would not suggest setting it this way in a ring. A pendant or earrings don’t take the abuse that a ring undergoes. In a ring, the exposed points of the marquise would catch on things and would constantly teeter-totter itself loose.
