  • $\begingroup$ Make an array across, then conform it to a curve using a Curve Modifier. After that, use another Array Modifier going down. The final bottom jewels that are larger can use the same curve but be offset with their meshes lower than their object origins. Maybe I can post an answer in more detail later if I have time. $\endgroup$
