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.
