To celebrate her wedding, the bride-to-be commissioned this pearl necklace made out of the highest quality freshwater pearls and diamond and gold petals taken from an earring she inherited from her mother. This is the ultimate "Something Old/Something New"!
The pearls have been arranged in vertical rows of three, suspended between two chains. Pavé diamond petals dangle from the pearls, creating a regal collar that is at once bridal and suitable for a thrown.
With one earring going into the creation of this necklace and the other to her sister for a bracelet celebrating the birth of her first child, these repurposed earrings have become a tie between generations from (grand)mother to daughters to grandchild, and commemorate the major milestones this family has experienced in a very short period of time.
