This 14-karat yellow gold pendant features a tapered bail and a dangling cup and peg mounting that holds one half-drilled pearl or stone bead. The bail is set with one round 2-pt. diamond (I1 clarity/G, H color) in a textured 14-karat white gold setting. Use jeweler’s epoxy to secure the bead or pearl on the peg; the twisted peg provides more surface area for the epoxy, creating a more secure hold.
• Pearls for cup and peg settings should be at least 2mm larger than the cup size.
