As promised, I’m posting a more “balanced” earring rendering tonight using the same color combination of topaz, diamonds and amethyst gemstones I used in yesterday’s rendering:
In this earring, I think I’ve achieved a better balance and grouping of the stones. Notice that the topaz and diamond gemstones are grouped in 3s; the amethyst briolette makes for a pleasing finish to the earring and brings the gemstone count to 7 in all…reinforcing my feeling that true beauty is often found in irregularities.
I could see this earring design being successful with a pearl drop instead of the faceted amethyst briolette, or with various combinations of gemstones for the upper portion of the earring. Using all diamonds for the upper portion would be stunning; I could also see a wonderful version of the earring using graded colors of sapphires with a black Tahitian pearl.
