Wendy Brandes Diamond and 18K White Gold Sunburst Necklace - Ukraine Donation

$20,000

About

Like many of my designs, this sunburst pendant was inspired by a brilliant woman -- Queen Elizabeth I. My artisans in New York City sat with me for hours discussing proportion, creating balance with a multi-strand chain, and discussing where to place each diamond to portray dazzling rays of light generated by the ruler known as "Gloriana." The purchase of this necklace will result in a $8,000 donation to humanitarian efforts in Ukraine. Receipt for the donation will be provided. 18K white gold. Over 2 carats of F/G VS diamonds. 2 1/2"" wide pendant on 16"" quadruple chain. Only one white gold version of this limited-edition design was ever made. Made in New York City.

About the Maker

Wendy Brandes Jewelry

About the Designer: Jewelry design is Wendy Brandes’s second career. Wendy started out as a business journalist at the Wall Street Journal and CNN, later switching to pop-culture coverage during her tenure as managing editor of People magazine’s website. Her story-telling skills remain as strong as ever, but they’re now expressed in carat weight and grams of gold instead of word count. Wendy's “Fine Jewelry for Witty People" is distinguished by its stellar workmanship; warm, satin finish; hidden and symbolic details, including mechanical parts; and wry commentary on everything from history to iPhone addiction. Her award-winning 18K yellow gold collection -- featured here -- is inspired by fascinating women, and all designs are limited-edition or one-of-a-kind. Wendy has been featured in the New York Times, W Magazine, and British Vogue, and her jewelry has been spotted on Rihanna, model Bella Hadid and Britney Spears.
