Stars are an eternal motif which have been interpreted by jewellers in a myriad of creative ways. However, the North Star is unique. Also known as Polaris, it is considered the brightest in the Little Dipper constellation, and occupies a special position in the sky relative to the Earth. It is located at the north celestial pole- the point at which the entire northern sky pivots. Consequently, the North Star appears to be stationary whilst all other stars rotate around it. Hence it is a true bearing for north. It is impossible to overstate how essential the North Star was for mariners exploring the oceans before the evolution of modern tracking equipment.
The design of this pendant acknowledges this prominence, and if intended as a gift, captures the most meaningful of sentiments- a person who is the centre of your universe, your guiding light.
The necklace features 0.06ct diamonds and is set in 14ct gold. The diamonds are micro pavé set, which is an art form and takes incredible patience and skill. The term “pavé” comes from the French for “paved”. The intention is for the stones to be set very close together so that very little metal is visible, resembling a paved or cobblestone street of gems. This popular setting results in a dazzling display of diamonds which sparkle when moved in light.
The necklace has been designed with versatility in mind, and conveniently has four adjustable lengths. 37.5cm at its shortest to 45cm at its longest. So if you favour layering your jewellery, this layers with ease.
Other star pendants in our collection include lapis lazuli and diamonds, and the Diamond Double Star Necklace in Yellow Gold, which features an open star accompanied by a smaller diamond “mini me” star.
