Hi, @Slick1 , is your bezel attached to the chain or is it free to slide on the chain?I have a similar necklace with a bezel. The problem I struggle with is that it doesn’t stay in the right spot. It shifts up toward my shoulder and I’m constantly checking it to make sure it’s straight. Pretty stone!
I bet it almost always goes in one direction.@eesmom I have a similar pendant with the setting attached directly to the chain, it doesn't really flip at all, but as so many have mentioned, it does shift around my neck constantly, and I find myself having to fidget with it to reposition the stone more than I enjoy. I don't foresee getting a setting like that again.
It may even be like water in the sink - different directions in the southern hemisphere!
I think I like that image of “windswept!”I have a custom small diamond in a fixed setting like this, and while it does travel slightly back and forth, it doesn't flip much at all. Actually, the lack of center-seating is a benefit not a drawback for my daily look, as my stone is small and I want it to look carelessly askew. Windswept, as it were.
Very good to know! I guess I’ll have to get it and adjust the length if needed.I've got a solitaire diamond Tiffany necklace. When I first got it, in original length, it would flip all the time. I have extended the chain by about 2.5 cm and no more flipping So I think it is all about the length which is right for you and where it hits you below your collarbone.
Yes! I hate it when I am constantly adjusting the clasp too! This may be a good solution for me.A few years ago, I switched my pendants from bales, which allowed the stones to slide on the chain, to fixed on the chain like this. Each brings its irritations. Yes, the attached ones like this sometimes shift over. But I much prefer that to what was happening before, which was that the clasp of the necklace was ALWAYS sliding around to the front.
