Diamond Pendant in Shape

Diamond Pendants: Diamond Source of Virginia Diamond Rings and Jewelry

Round diamonds pendantDiamond pendants are beautiful ornaments suspended from a necklace, bracelet, brooch or earring. The classic diamond solitaire pendant is a single quality diamond, suspended on a chain from a women's neck. It is simple and elegant and can be worn with everything from jeans to evening wear. Once she puts a diamond pendant on, she will never want to take it off.

The tradition of diamond pendants is derived from the primitive practice of wearing amulets or talismans around the neck. The practice dates from the Stone Age, when pendants consisted of such objects as teeth, stones, and shell. Of course jewelry has come a long way since the Stone Age and the diamond pendants available worn today are exceptionally beautiful.

Pendants-Prong Set

Two loops called bails which have the appearance of rabbits ears, are the most popular form of diamond pendant. The two bails have big enough openings to accommodate different chains since the chain and hook at the end can easily be slide through the bails. Being able to use the same pendant on different chains provide great flexibility by allowing different lengths of chains for different styles of clothing as well as different styles of chain that can provide variety in appearance.

Bezel pendants with round diamondsThe diamond is usually prong set in a basket with a flat back so that the pendant will lay flat and not roll or twist to one side. Because pendants do not take the physical abuse like a ring on a finger, the prongs and basket for a pendant can be much smaller and less noticeable. This results in a net effect of a beautiful, sparkling diamond floating at the end of the chain.

Some diamond pendants have a single bail holding the diamond and basket. With a single bail there is more likelihood that the pendant might flip or twist to one side but the single bail is a popular choice for smaller stones since it is less noticeable than a double bail. On some diamond pendants, the bail is used for more than a fastening device as it is either pave set or bead set with diamonds to be an extension of the diamond pendants sparkle.

Pendants-Bezel Set

With bezel set diamond pendants, the diamond is surrounded with a collar of metal called a bezel. If the bezel is white gold or platinum, it tends to make the diamond even larger than its real size. If the bezel is yellow gold, the contrast between the yellow metal and the white diamond provides a beautiful look. The bezel can also be pave or bead set with small diamonds which give the appearance of a large disk of sparkling diamond.

Weeee, this is fun

by Shimmer1980

I've never had romance in a relationship. It's hard to even contain my excitement.
I posted yesterday about being obsessed with marriage. I think I keep analyzing my SO, but I am trying to stop, and just focus on fun.
Last night he told me he was taking me to dinner, and that I could pick any place I wanted. He presented me with a beautiful white gold heart shaped pendant with a diamond. It was all wrapped and fancy and it was so sweet. I've never gotten jewelry "just because". I thanked him over and over again. He told me that's one thing he loves about me, I get super excited about anything
