This elegant Sapphire and Diamond snowflake necklace was recently made to use these sapphires and diamonds I have been trying to recycle. This piece came out lovely and is ready to put on a bride for something blue with a minimalist feel. The sapphires are tapered baguettes separated by round brilliant cut diamonds set in single prongs. The pendant hangs on 14k white gold diamond cut cable link chain that measures at a total length of 16".

Sapphire & Diamond Pendant in 14k White Gold
Bracelets and rings get the most wear out of all the styles of jewelry. Make sure that your jewelry is professionally cleaned and your stones checked annually.
For gold rings, the higher the karat weight, the softer the metal will be, and the easier it will scratch. Frequent polishing is unecessary. Polishing your rings removes layers of metals and will thin it out through time.
The same goes with platinum, as it is a malleable and softer metal, yet denser, which makes it last longer. Platinum is also a white metal naturally and stays white, whereas white gold is yellow that has white alloys giving it a whiter appearance, but will never be as white as platinum.
For high value items, typically of $1,000, it is a good idea to have your pieces insured on your homeowners policy or with a separate insurer like Jewelers Mutual.
