Yes, it’s a diamond necklace, but not as you know it. Forget the predictable solemnity of a solitaire stone hanging limp from a chain, Dana Kellin’s design reinvents the diamond pendant as a no mere thing of beauty, but an eye catching piece brimming with personality.
Arranged mosaic style on a bed miniature gold pieces, the uncut diamonds lack the pomp of over-polished stones and gleam even brighter against the pendent’s gold wire frame. Big, bold and oh so beautiful the pendant may say statement, but the long and delicate gold chain says laid back, making it versatile enough to glitter both day and night.
This season the catwalks have been overflowing with seventies inspired looks, and even the quickest glance at the autumn catwalks will reveal that the trend shows no signs of slowing down. If you’re not ready to go all out in top to toe Halston Heritage, this piece is the perfect nod to the trend. With the pendant’s round, discus shape and gold finishing, the necklace references glitzy late Seventies glamour and captures just that little bit of disco diva chic, while its contemporary design makes it nothing less than timeless.
