Part of our Signature Collection, we made this 18k gold and chocolate diamond necklace by sending the diamond to have a tiny hole drilled in its corner so that it could dangle without a mount. To drill a diamond is a labor intensive process that requires many stops and starts to allow the diamond to rest between drilling as to not break the stone. Once drilled, the diamond—an extremely hard stone—is very secure. We chose a platinum bail to connect the diamond to the chain so that the color of the bail would flow into the stone. The end result is a diamond that appears to float on the chain like a dew drop.
Chocolate diamonds come in a variety of shades that range from light brown to chocolate. This chocolate diamond has a beautiful translucence that accentuates the triangular facets of the tear drop. The diamond is a very pretty pear shape with great proportions. The Rose Cut can be worn with either side of the stone facing up.
The chain is 18” with a lobster clasp. It is marked as Italian 18k gold. The necklace weighs 2.23 grams. The natural Rose Cut diamond measures 4.5 x 5.6 x 1.5 mm, approximately .29 of a carat.
We have a collection of these floating diamond necklaces in our shop. They look great worn together in a stack! See our Dangling Pear Shape Cognac Rose Cut Diamond on 14K Gold Chain for a diamond in a cognac hue.
