Vintage Opal Diamond Pendant

Pendant in Platinum set with Opal and Diamond

One year at the Tucson Gem Show I went to visit a friend who comes every year to the AGTA. His name is Mark Levine and his company is called Merchants Oceanic out of New York City. Mark had a fantastic lot of opal which I fell in love with. It was the nicest opal I had worked with and I needed to put it with diamond and set it in platinum.

The opal was cut in free form shapes so I wanted to cluster them in an organic manner and fill in with diamond.

Penadant by Sam PataniaThis pendant was so much fun to make. I couldn’t photograph it to do it justice, the opal was just magnificent. It has depth, color and flash, all you could want in opal.

The backs of the opals were not flat but raw crystal so setting them took some doing. I used tubing to make the diamond bezels.

I finished this piece off with a very simple commercial chain which did not take away form the pendant at all.

I photographed it on a model to show proportion. This product shot was done with 35mm film and scanned. I shot it on a piece of glass which gave the picture a nice shadow.

Diamond Necklaces!

I got them both diamond necklaces that are sterling silver. I caught them on sale and had a coupon, so I didn't end up spending the $75 it quotes (more like $25), but they'll never know!
My FH got his guys engraved harmonicas, because he plays the harmonica in a friend's band (also a groomsmen). I thought that was cute.

Which style of jewelry necklace do u like?and where do u buy it ?

I like to mix up my jewelry depending on my mood and what I'm wearing (mostly my mood though, lol - matching isn't as important to me). However, I do tend to turn to the same general styles time and again.

One of the places I shop most often is FantasyJewelryBox.com Their jewelry is really gorgeous - much of it looks like the pieces celebrities wear, but it's crazy cheaper than theirs. A necklace I got recently that I'm really loving is this multistone geometric necklace It has beautiful stones and sparkle, and I find I'm in the mood to wear it quite often! Hope you find something…
