Not literally. At least it's an interpretation of sorts. Some juicy orange and yellow sapphires with a criss-cross of pave diamonds and seed pearls. A lively piece, these earrings just pop out; with yellows being the brightest hues in the color scale. Sharp sparkles provided by two of the hardest natural substances, which are of course, diamonds and corundum (sapphires); mixed with the softness of the pearls. I have to say they go agreeably well with most skin tones (and hair colors). And, I'd like to think, personalities.

pearls and yellow gold pebbles

I started experimenting in matte finishes on metal surfaces a few years ago and found that this type of treatment really made yellow gold look organic. Like glowing pebbles. Strung along a south sea pearl strand with excellent luster, the luminous whites and randomly placed rough yellows make for a great low-key but elegant combination. With the interesting lock meant to be worn like an off-center pendant.

Deco Diamonds

Here's a piece with an updated Art Deco twist. Round and princess cut diamonds set in white gold. Big, bold and angular; yet very refined.
