Riya Necklace by Priyanka Kedia

Home > Winners > #52478


DESIGN DETAILS
DESIGN NAME:
Riya

PRIMARY FUNCTION:
Necklace

INSPIRATION:
The inspiration for this necklace comes from two pieces of the past: A family heirloom commissioned by my grandfather for my grandmother; and a silver collar I owned and loved as a child. Riya’s elements combine nods to the past- marquise-shape gemstones and diamonds- and an updated silhouette, giving way to the future. It was designed as a symbol of love and dedication, a legacy to be carried on for generations to come; its aesthetic puts an emphasis on eternal love and the unity of two souls.

UNIQUE PROPERTIES / PROJECT DESCRIPTION:
Seeking a balance between luxurious and casual, the angular-cut stones juxtaposed with a grouping of pear and marquise-shape stones is playful and eye-catching.The heirloom pieces that inspired this collar were analyzed and deconstructed, their forms abstracted and reinterpreted to create a design of stability and comfort.The gemstones were carefully placed to lend an appearance of symmetry, though the design’s differentiating feature is an asymmetrical look.

OPERATION / FLOW / INTERACTION:
Though the collar necklace is an in-demand silhouette now, I anticipate that the hard work and careful design that resulted in this piece will ensure that it becomes a steadfast presence- not only for the current owner, but for many years and generations beyond their wear.

PROJECT DURATION AND LOCATION:
3 months for designing and 3 months to manufacture Location : San Francisco- CA

PRODUCTION / REALIZATION TECHNOLOGY:
Model: First, a wax mold was created and hand-carved. A silver sample was created from the mold, after which it was molded in 18k yellow gold and hand-set with gemstones and diamonds.

SPECIFICATIONS / TECHNICAL PROPERTIES:
18K Yellow Gold Materials Diamonds, White Sapphires, Pink Tourmalines

RESEARCH ABSTRACT:
I hold close the emotions I feel when I wear those family heirloom pieces created so long ago, knowing that they were carefully crafted to honor a loved one. Those pieces started with my grandfather: Now, I’d like others’ heirlooms to start with me. I realize that there is a growing demand for artisan creations: jewelry that comes with a story, and that lasts through generations. I believe that an entire story can be told through a jewelry design, and that is what I sought to do with this particular piece.

CHALLENGE:
I knew that I wanted to create an asymmetrical look- the unexpected is beautifully appealing. But the question was, how to correctly balance the piece once worn, if one side featured a heavier gemstone weight than the other. The challenge came in crafting a piece that, though necessary to be balanced on both sides, didn’t actually appear that way. As a result, this design took a long time to finish, but in the end, resulted in a style I’m proud of.
