Supernova Star Eternal Double Sided Pendant Necklace by Meredith Young


| /

Specs: Set in 18k gold, this reversable pendant features .72 ctw of diamonds and .94 cts oval white sapphire. One side depicts the birth of a star and the other side a supernova. A supernova results when the core of a massive star collapses and explodes on itself resulting in a brilliant burst of energy. It marks the end of a star's life and the beginning of its new form. In the same way, this necklace celebrates transitions and the phases of life. The diamonds graduate in size in order to depict this outward movement of light and material.

Story: This lovely 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.
