This was one of my more challenging commissioned pieces from October 2016. One of my long time clients wanted a special pendant for his wife to celebrate their wedding anniversary.┬áHe wanted to use both of their initials (N and Z), and to have a diamond set within a 14kt pendant of both white and yellow gold. The mechanics were challenging to design, as he wanted the letters of their initials to be able to be interchangeable by rotating. I came up with a design that would allow that interchangability by creating a track on the back of the pendant, in which the bail is able to change positions, which in turn rotates the whole pendant, and gives the impression of the “Z” changing to an “N” and vise versa.
