Jen’s Obsession: Susan Wheeler’s Platinum and Diamond Pendant Necklace

The duo of platinum and diamonds typically brings to mind images of classic looks such as round brilliant solitaires set in prong settings, but I like this piece from Susan Wheeler precisely because it bucks that traditional styling. The Chicago-based jewelry designer’s pendant necklace in platinum features a small diamond slice offset by rose-cut rocks, all materials harmoniously blending together to present a unified shimmering and mirror-like front. I like it for its understated effect and the fact that it’s a touch mysterious—not everyone will recognize the slice as a diamond—but completely covetable. It retails for $6,000.
