Heart Shaped Diamond Rings, Necklaces, Earrings, Pendants

One of our favorite projects has long been our puffed heart collection, which includes heart shaped diamond necklaces, pavé heart shaped diamond rings, and pavé heart shaped diamond earrings.  Over a period of approximately 30 years, we have created an enormous variety of fine jewelry pieces that fit into this collection. 

Many of these pieces could be considered custom jewelry, meaning they were produced according to one customer’s desire, but the bulk of our diamond heart jewelry has been made in five basic patterns.  Additionally, we have made diamond heart jewelry in a variety of metals, but by far the greatest number of such pieces have been produced in platinum.

We have made far more diamond hearts in platinum than in any other metal because the properties of the metal are unsurpassed for the purpose.  Platinum is extremely strong.  Therefore, it is possible to create a piece of jewelry that appears to be made up entirely of diamonds.  The structural members of the piece of jewelry that are made up of platinum can be relatively thin, allowing more space for diamonds.  This is exactly what is needed when creating a puffed pavé heart shaped diamond ring, necklace, pendant, or earrings, covered with diamonds to the maximum degree.

  Platinum is also excellent for making puffed pavé diamond hearts because it can be polished to a high luster and because its color, white, closely approximates the color of the most often used diamonds in fine jewelry, which is also white.

Though platinum has long been our metal of choice when crafting pavé heart shaped diamond necklaces, pavé heart shaped rings with diamonds, heart shaped diamond earrings, and pavé diamond heart pendants, there are other diamond and metal combinations that are without peer for their striking beauty.  Examples include pavé yellow diamonds set in 18k yellow gold and pavé pink diamonds set in 18k rose gold.  While platinum is unrivalled for its strength, these diamond and gold combinations are without equal for their astonishing color harmony and brilliance.

When it comes to color, there is no jewelry metal that can compare to gold.  This is because there are only two metals on our planet that have color at all.  Those two are gold and copper.  Copper, by itself, is not desirable for jewelry, as it turns people’s skin green when it oxidizes.  Copper, when alloyed with other metals to make brass or bronze, though it can look pretty, still has that nasty tendency to discolor a person’s skin.  Only when alloyed with gold does copper come into its own, resulting in metals that have color, are relatively strong, and lack the propensity to change the hue of one’s skin.

It is by adding combinations of copper and silver to gold that varying colors are obtained such as: yellow gold, containing approximately equal parts of gold and silver; pink or rose gold, containing more copper and less silver; and green gold, containing more silver and less copper.  The alloying (mixing) of gold with other metals can get a lot more complicated than this simplistic explanation, and there are other colors that are achievable, but this writing is only intended as a basic explanation.  Perhaps one day I will go into greater detail for those who would find the information useful rather than boring.

Before I leave the topic of gold for now, I would like to address the question that may be on your mind; why add copper or silver at all?  Why not just use pure gold?  The answer has to do with strength, durability, and softness.  While gold in its pure state is very beautiful, it is so soft that it would get bent out of its intended shape very easily; it lacks sufficient strength to securely hold gemstones set in it, and it wears away too fast to hold a polish in the short run, or to keep from being worn away in the long run.

Platinum, while lacking color, excels in every other respect.  It is strong, resistant to wearing away, and hard enough to hold its shape.  It takes a polish well and keeps that polish.  When white diamonds are set in platinum, the metal can seem to blend away, appearing as though the piece is made up entirely of diamonds.

Our pavé puffed diamond hearts, due to the excellence in their craftsmanship, and due to the excellence in their materials are timelessly beautiful, delicate in appearance, and yet are extremely durable.  They are heirloom pieces that can be passed down in your family for literally countless generations.

I have often thought that one of our pavé puffed diamond hearts would last a thousand years if it was reasonably taken care of.  Unfortunately, I won’t be able to prove or disprove this theory in a lifetime.  I once had a client who had purchased many of them say to me, “Your hearts are so well made that you could drive a truck over one without doing damage!”  Now, this theory could be proven or disproved in a lifetime, but I do not recommend it, and I offer no such guarantee.

We make puffed pavé diamond heart jewelry in a variety of patterns.

Heart Shaped Diamond Necklace Pendants, which are worn using a pass-through chain, come in five primary patterns. These include:

This size works well for a heart shaped diamond ring.

♥ Our second largest puffed pavé diamond heart, which is around 15.8 millimeters in height containing 69 diamonds, with a total diamond weight of approximately 2.10 carats. This heart uses 2.6-millimeter diamonds in the vicinity of center, tapering to 1.3-millimeter diamonds at the edges.

♥ Our largest puffed pavé diamond heart, which is in the vicinity of 17.8 millimeters in height containing 65 diamonds, with a total diamond weight of approximately 3.00 carats. This heart uses 2.8-millimeter diamonds near the center, tapering to 1.5-millimeter diamonds at the edges.

Puffed, Pavé Diamond Heart Pendants Covered Front and Back with Diamonds with a Pass-Through Chain

In addition to these five primary configurations, we produce four variations of heart pendant for necklaces that are covered in diamonds on both sides, rather than having a lacy back.  The same diamond layout that is displayed on the front is repeated on the back, and the front and back patterns meet, blending perfectly together on the sides.

The smallest of these double-sided diamond hearts has 156 pavé-set diamonds with a total weight of about 2.15 carats.

The next size of double-sided heart has 164 pavé-set diamonds with a total weight of around 3.30 carats.

The second largest double-sided heart has 168 pavé-set diamonds with a total weight of about 4.50 carats.

Our largest double-sided heart has 156 pavé-set diamonds with a total weight of approximately 6.50 carats.

Heart Shaped Diamond Ring

We produce several heart shaped rings with diamonds that incorporate any one of the heart patterns that is used for the three smallest sizes of diamond heart pendants that we produce. These are gracefully mounted on a shank, that has been specifically designed for the purpose, allowing the pavé puffed heart to be worn as a beautiful ring.

The space that would ordinarily be used to thread a chain through the diamond heart pendant, in order to wear it as a necklace, is filled in with diamonds when these heart patterns are used to make rings.  Therefore, when we make a heart shaped diamond ring, the total diamond weight for the piece is slightly heavier than the same size of heart completed as a pave heart shaped diamond necklace.

These works of art make wonderful heart shaped diamond engagement rings, promise rings, and anniversary rings, and can be quite economical when compared to other options.  This is because a single substantial-sized diamond is far more expensive than numerous smaller diamonds that add up to the same total diamond weight.
