Rare and precious golden South Sea pearls are mesmerizing yet subtle. Diamonds are glamorous and eternal. A combination of these two was the obvious choice for our client who wanted us to craft a unique heirloom necklace for her. A timeless and extraordinary piece that generations of her family would love to inherit. Here, in this blog, we take you through the process of how this extraordinary piece was created.
The very first step of creating this beautiful necklace was showing our client multiple concepts through sketches. When our designer started to sketch the options, we tried to weave in the love we saw for jewellery in the eyes of our client. After working through and discussing the options, our client and us, chose this wreath necklace. A subtle yet spectacular piece of beauty with radiant pear and marquise diamonds interweaved with golden South Sea pearls.
While the technicalities of the sketch were being processed, we started to select the perfect diamonds and pearls for the settings. Plump, juicy and proportionate is how we wanted the diamonds to be. We were naturally drawn to using pear and marquise shaped diamonds which complemented the round shape of the pearls. When our heart would swell with the beauty of the diamond, we knew this was the perfect one.
Golden South Sea pearls possess a mesmerizing quality with their subtle sheen and texture. After looking through more than 250 pearls, we hand picked 37.
In an attempt to visualize the final piece, we created a 3D drawing of the necklace and showed it to our client. Any changes if required could easily be made at this stage. But we needed none!
Right before the final step of production in 18karat gold, we decided to make things perfect. The client was shown an actual 3D model of the necklace in wax. Here we saw the detailing of the intricate design, the actual size of the stones being used and it was also placed on the neck to see the fit. It was perfect!
Our clients are extremely comfortable ordering high value bespoke pieces with Mahika because they know the level of care we take at every step to ensure that they receive a piece of jewellery that their heart desires.
At last, the piece was made in gold and set with diamonds and pearls.
This was the final cut to the perfect piece. And there it was shining away, in a glittering party in uptown Singapore, on the neckline of our beautiful client. This is not only a story of making of a piece of 17.02 carats of sparkling diamonds and 204.53 carats of perfect pearls. It’s a story of the journey, of creating an ageless masterpiece by Mahika.
Each step, right from the design to the choice of diamonds and pearls and the final production happens under complete quality control and transparency. To reinforce the quality, we delivered the necklace with a certificate of authenticity from a globally recognized laboratory stating the authenticity of the raw materials used. We at Mahika get personally involved in the process to deliver each and every piece, which makes the journey memorable and personal for the client. The warm and friendly service at Mahika is what makes us stand apart, along with the brilliant designs of course.
