Blue And White Diamond Drop Pendant In Platinum

Any pendant which can be made with near-colourless diamonds can also be made with yellow diamonds. It may be more difficult because of the greater rarity of yellow diamonds, but it can be done, with great results.

We made this pendant to a customers design specfication, and we hope they were as pleased with the end result as we were.

The main difficulty we had with this order was matching the shades of blue, which is alot more difficult than you would think!

Multi- Coloured Diamond Heart Shaped Pendant

Any pendant which can be made with near-colourless diamonds can also be made with yellow diamonds. It may be more difficult because of the greater rarity of yellow diamonds, but it can be done, with great results.

Hearts have always been a classic type of pendant. We bought this pendant mount from an Italian supplier so we may struggle to make another, so if you like it you had better be quick, as jewellery featuring coloured diamonds tends to sell quicker than we can make it!

The largest yellow diamond in the world

Tiffany diamond

The famous Tiffany diamond, flashing yellow beams of light and weighing 128.54 carats, is on loan to the National Museum of Natural History until September.

The jewel, one of the largest fancy yellow diamonds ever discovered, was lent by Tiffany & Co. for a rare trip outside New York.

The diamond, mined in South Africa in 1877, was cut from its original 287.42 carats by famed Tiffany gemologist George Frederick Kunz.

"This is one of the world's great diamonds," said Jeffrey Post, curator of the museum's National Gem Collection. "The color is intense and even in 1878 it made a splash, and Kunz cut it for its brilliance." It has 82 facets instead of the usual 58.

The diamond, which is about an inch wide, will be displayed in its current "Bird on a Rock" setting by Jean Schlumberger -- a brooch with a bird of yellow and white pavé diamonds with a ruby eye perched on top.

14k White Gold Chinese Symbol For Love Pendnt
In them odern Chinese Document A whole , Reaped ground character is a form of its own, representing a particular sound and at least one meaning.

In other words, each Chinese Emblem is a unity of form, sound and meaning.

To Be informed of Chinese writing, you need to know each Chinese symboi or Moral qualities individually. You will need a vocabulary of at least 3,000 characters to understand 90% of what you read.

A vocabulary of 4-5,000 characters allows you to understand almost everything written in Chinese in the modern context. Although there are more than 60,000 characters listed in the largest Chinese dictionaries most of them are ancient symbols and no longer in use.

Only a very small proportion of Chinese characters- some 300, perhaps- are simple representations of natural objects; all others are composite signs.

Each sign generally has two components: a graphic component (which repeesent a man, woman, tree etc.) and a phonetic component, which gives Some people idea of the pronunciation.

Learning Chinese writing is quite different from learning a Western language.
To learn a Western language like English, you need to know a whole series of sounds. If you take an English word apart, separating it into its many phonetic syllables, it would lose its meaning altogether.

In learn Chinese writing, you first lean the characters and then you learnn the wor.dTake, for instance, the Chinese da4 xue2 ?? which means "university". First you learn da4 “big” and xue2 “school; learn” separately.

Although the meaning of da xue has to do with da and xue, it is not a simple case of da ”big” plua xue ”school”. It does not mean "big school".

If you were to take the English word “university” and try to figure out its meaning based on the m3anings of the five syllabic components u/ni/ver/sit/ty, you would not understand anything because they mean nothing.

So, the Chinese character forms the basis in learning Chinese writing whereas the word or sentence forms the basis for learning a Western language.

In Chinese writing, the symbol is the unit carrier of meaning whereas in English it is the word which serves the same purpose.

Chinese characters are essentially pictures and they appeal to the eye. In comparison, Western letters and words are based on
sound rather than sight.
