A summer evening

Cute vintage pendant with sapphire & diamonds, around 1990

The transition from day to night is a meaningful moment. When rest comes and work is done, new possibilities open up and the world is transformed. This alternation of day and night is a symbol of the cycle of life that has been sung about since ancient times. In this vintage pendant, this idea of opposites belonging together is captured in a piece of jewellery - and thus enriches its beauty with a symbolic level of meaning. Created in the years around 1990, the piece of jewellery presents a midnight blue sapphire at its centre: a wreath of small diamonds frames it and embeds the sapphire as if on white light reflections. The interplay of sapphire and diamond is particularly happy, the contrasting colours of the stones enhancing their effect enormously. A setting of 14-karat yellow gold completes the oval pendant. It is the colour of the sun that here embraces the glow of the stars and the colour of the night, yet gives them space, virtually withdrawing to make way for the joys of the night, as it does every evening. A delicate curb chain makes it immediately wearable as a necklace.
