    Also, it's much prettier in person. This photo gives the impression there's a lot of space around the center pearl, especially at the botton, but when worn, the finding nestles so nicely around the center pearl, without that big gap at all.

    +1 I was thinking cage for the silver and hanger up top but that application is brilliant!
    Who did the actual production of the piece? Do they sell the findings themselves? I have found a dearth of options either premade or for components!

    John Dwight at Pearl Paradise, where I bought both the loose pearl and the strand, did the work for me. I think Hisano was involved as well . I had the pearls for close to a year; I'd brought home from a Ruckus. An enhancer design was percolating in my brain, I sent back to John during a slower time, and he had it for a while, mulling over various ideas, till his brilliant idea. The cage is a standard PP finding; look for the Embrace pendant, and it already opens to put pearls in or out. So that part became the enhancer, intact, to go over the center pearl of the strand, and John designed and soldered on the bezel for the gems, and the pearl pin to set the rainbow drop. He soldered those pieces on toward the back so the cage could still open, right above the gems to take on and off. I would think you could do the reverse, with the cage at the bottom for the silver pearl, and above that an enhancer finding/bail soldered on but I'm not a jeweler ... just a girl with too much imagination, as my hubby says Also take the word "soldered on" etc. as NON-technical terms ... If nothing else, maybe it will get your ideas flowing.
