Starryeyed- your pendant and chain together :love:

absolutely beautiful, what a re-set!

Question: you had it in a martini setting and talked abt your diamond flipping and moving up your neck. Does that happen in a fixed bezel setting? Was it bz of the lovely size of your stone?

Hi 16ocean! Thank you!

I can really only speak to the fixed martini setting, but let me say this. I believe the problem was compounded by 2 things. First, the martini setting didn't have a flat back that could rest squarely on my chest. Second, because the chain was fixed to the setting, the diamond was not free to slide.

So I guess the answer to your question would depend on the bezel. If the bezel has a flat back and/or is free to slide, there may be less problem with flipping and/or traveling up the neck. I can't say for sure.

You may want to start a thread over in Rocky Talk and propose the question. See if anyone with the setting you describe chimes in.

This setting & chain is absolute #GOALS! I was inspired by this TBT and made some changes to my (much smaller) necklace. Do you think this setting would work with smaller diamonds? I'm having issues with mine flipping down, but my setting was not thought out to the extent yours was.

I've added to one of my threads if anyone wants to weigh in!
