Mark Vanden Berg, designer for Centric Designs, LLC (http://familycentricpendant.com) is introducing his new Family Centric Pendant™ . This contemporary fine-art pendant carries a US Design Patent and would make a thoughtful gift for the birth of a child, an anniversary, a birthday, or any occasion to express the value of a family relationship. This piece of wearable art is ideal for a woman of discriminating taste who appreciates uniqueness and high-end quality in a fashion piece. Each pendant is made with care and can be chosen from various combinations of yellow gold, rose gold, and/or platinum. Each design incorporates white or color-enhanced diamonds for a total karat weight of 0.4 This one-of-a-kind pendant is designed and named for the depiction of the family unit: father, mother, and baby. Each pendant is made by hand using the finest materials with exceptional attention to detail.
Mark's vision for the piece was inspired by a conversation with a friend who had recently become a first time father. He wanted to commemorate the special event with an exceptional piece of jewelry for his wife in a way that reflected their new family. Mark used his knowledge of mold making to develop an aluminum mold that would host the quality and repeatability of the wax casting process. Each pendant is itself four separate pieces: the father, the mother, the baby, and the loop that is designed to swivel 360 degrees on a chain to ensure the luster of the piece from any given angle. Diamonds are then added to the father and mother on each side to simulate their eyes.
Clients can choose from four different styles of pendants. Style A is all platinum; Style B is a combination of yellow gold, platinum, and rose gold; Style C is a combination of yellow gold and platinum; Style D is a combination of platinum and rose gold. All pieces come standard with white diamonds. An option can be implemented selecting from five choices of color-enhanced diamonds for the mother's eyes: cognac red, canary yellow, emerald green, rose pink, or sky blue.
All diamonds are VS Clarity, F-Color diamonds. Each pendant has two 3.4mm diamonds to represent the father's eyes and two 2.3 mm diamonds to represent the mother's eyes. Each pendant has a total carat weight of 0.4 The pendants are 1.5" long.
Mark's pendant was recently featured on the Celebrity Baby Scoop website and received over 100 enthusiastic comments from the readers of the site. His pieces have also recently been carried in fine-art jewelry stores located in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
