8 Diamond Drop Necklace with Sterling Silver and 18k Yellow Gold
by Cheryl Rydmark
.25ctw diamonds, oxidized sterling silver, 18k yellow gold; 16” long with a 2” extender.
With its casual elegance and simplicity, this versatile necklace can be worn with everything - it’s equally perfect with jeans and a t shirt, LBD or cashmere sweater.
Varying lengths of satin finished tubing and polished jump rings are arranged on a wheat chain and accented with hammer set diamonds and textured leaves; creating a unique, seemingly random composition.
Called a jeweler's jeweler for her uncompromising quality and sensitive handling of the materials, Cheryl Rydmark's elegant pieces resonate with an elemental simplicity and sensuality reminiscent of ancient jewelry and ritual objects.
Currently celebrating 42 years as a metalsmith, Cheryl maintains a studio on the Mendocino coast, where she practices her craft in between kayaking, teaching and gardening.
