Open Circle Blue Ombre Sapphire Necklace by Meredith Young


| /

Specs: The pure beauty of this necklace brings a sense of serenity... Ombre-hued blue sapphires gently undulate around an 18k gold open circle evoking the tranquil essence of the sea. A single off-set diamond, with a total weight of 0.15 carats, adds a touch of brilliance to the pendant suspended on a ball chain. 

Story: This stunning necklace is part of Meredith's Controlled Chaos collection. As the oxymoron suggests, the Controlled Chaos Collection plays stability off instability. Different sized baguettes and rounds are used in arrangements that can be grasped in a single glance. For example, these forms come together in a single plane like a circle, faceted stone or organic geode shape. This kind of visual grounding allows the layout to stabilize only a moment before the composition of diamonds complicates the idea of a pattern. Often times, the diamonds only move partially around another material or shape to imply a type of destabilized order in progress. Like the chaos theory, Meredith sought to create an aesthetic system that hinted at order even if it was just a whisper.
