Batman Necklace – The Dark Man Rises Custom Creations

Batman Necklace – The Dark Man Rises Custom Creations
We get quite a few calls to recreate the necklace seen in the Batman movie with Anne Hathaway. This is one of our most popular custom design projects- one of our specialties is Custom Design, and out of all our projects, I think the Dark Man Rises Necklace is one of the most elegant and beautiful…

Last week, we began a 16-inch version using lustrous Silver-Rose White South Sea pearls mixed with our Gem Quality Elite Collection Freshwater pearls to fill in the smaller end sections near the clasp. The process begins by making sure we have enough of both pearl types in the right sizes to match:

Once we’ve matched the pearls and sent in pictures for our customer’s approval, we start locating the spot on each pearl where I’ll drill so we can string the necklace.

We specially ordered a clasp from one of our fine diamond and finding suppliers here in Los Angeles to give the necklace that perfect “Finishing Touch”. What I love about this clasp in particular is that the lines are very clean but the design has this Art Deco feel to it that recalls the glamour and flamboyance of the 1920’s…

Once the pearls are fully knotted and finished, we’re ready for our glamour shots!

The entire process takes about a week from start to finish, and the results are definitely gorgeous! The client will receive his necklace sometime today, and I’m waiting with baited breath to hear what he and his wife think of our work (will update you all later in the comments!).
