The Astral Dawn Tahitian Pearl Pendant evokes the exquisite break of dawn, captured by three sapphires in tones of purple, pink and rose, hand-set in 18 carat white gold with a beautiful Tahitian pearl.

The Astral collection is inspired by the stars and the night skies, and captures their brilliance in radiant diamonds and heavenly combinations of coloured sapphires.

Grouping three round faceted gemstones, the pieces reference the occurrence of the number three in nature – from the triangular patterns within major constellations, to the classical trefoil of petals and leaves.

This stunning pearl pendant features three 3mm gemstones, in purple, deep pink and rose sapphire, handset in 18 carat white gold.

The pendant's white diamond bail, through which the 18 carat white gold chain is threaded, uses a classic setting style to create a timeless jewel that will complement any wardrobe.

The chain measures 45cm in length with an extra loop set in the chain at 42cm. This adjuster means that the pendant can be worn slightly higher on the neckline, depending on the style and outfit of the day.

An 8.5-9mm diameter Tahitian pearl, hand selected for its characteristic light grey body colour, delicate overtones and excellent lustre, completes the piece.

If you would prefer a longer gold chain to match this pendant, this can be made to order. Please contact us and we would be pleased to help.

The Astral Dawn Tahitian Pearl Pendant can be purchased with a pair of matching Astral Dawn Studs in White Gold with Tahitian Pearls or Astral Dawn Stud Earrings in White Gold.

The lustre of a pearl describes how light is reflected from a pearl's surface. The strength of a pearl's lustre is one of the most important qualities to consider.
