Ok, maybe tmi, but I''''m just sitting here wondering, what do you think? If you are, well, well-endowed up there, do you look better in larger pendants? The reason I''''m asking is that I am definitely NOT, but have just put my 1.5 radiant ering rock (as you know, I know) in a pendant. It''''s not huge by many ps standards, but larger than I''''ve ever put up there.

I worry that the darn thing will overpower my physique. My husband thinks I''''m crazy for even bringing it up (no, he likes the pendant, he just thinks it''''s silly to worry about such stuff).

What do you think?

That''''s why I probably have always like chokers. They draw the eye further up. (Although I haven''''t worn a choker since high school. Remember those velvet ones? lol) (Think 70''''s).

Umm, I have never given it a thought. I'm more well endowned there than I would like and honestly have never never thought about how pendants look in regard to my chest size. I will say that I don't like pendants that fall right between if you know what I mean. I think that drawas the eye to where I don't want it to be!

I tend to wear 17 or 18 inch chains.

I'm sure you pendant is beautiful. Post a picture!!

edited to add I just saw your other thread and I think the pendant is beautiful.

Hi, I don''t think the 1.5 pendant will look huge. I don''t mean that the diamond is not big, but if you set it simply, then it should look fine (cleavage or not). There are some pendants that are huge eg: those pave designed pendants or even some tiffany pendants look huge in comparison to a simple solitaire pendant setting but again I think they are simply gorgeous, cleavage or not. If you are well endowed, just wear a shorter chain so that the pendant does not draw attention to the cleavage, unless that''s a look that you like..

Listen to your husband. That beautiful pendant is not going to overpower your physique! I think perhaps if you had a pendant on a long chain that fell in the bust area it might have some impact, but certainly not with a shorter chain. Wear that baby proudly!

ditto ! I think your radiant will look gorgeous and it''s really not overpowering at all even if (like me !) you are not "well endowed" up there...which gives you even a wider choice of chain length...you can wear it with a longer chain without attracting the eye to somewhere else...

Oh I don''t think it matters. I have nothing up top either, and I''d wear a honkin'' diamond pendant if I were fortunate enough. I think that a diamond pendant is beautiful on anyone, regardless of shape or size.

Thanks everyone. Between being "barely there" and all my freckles, I was getting paranoid!

ha! I''m the opposite. chesty and plus size. "dainty" doesn''t do it for me. I strive to wear pendants at least 3/4 -1 inch square (the size of a quarter)

huge diamond cluster hearts, ebay finds.

enjoy your radiant as a pendant! make sure you have a sturdy chain.

Your question has historical aspects.

Louis XIV had a mistress named Louise La Valliere. It was her trademark to wear a large pendant. This is because she was small chested and she thought it "distracted" people from her small chest. To this day large pendants of a certain style are called. "Lavaliers".

So, having a small chest does not prevent one from a) wearing a large pendant b) becoming mistress to a king c) leaving your mark on the history of jewelry!

I don''t see any reason you need cleavage to wear a large pendant. I think it just boils down to preference.

I have always wished I had Jaimie Lee Curtis'' figure---I thought the locket she wore in "A Fish Called Wanda" was perfect on her. A gal always wants what she can''t have, I guess. lol My daughter has a wonderful figure and looks great in longer chains and larger pendents. Oh well!

I never really even thought about cleavage and jewels. I guess if you are self conscious and something is hangin low and you feel people are paying attention to your less than ample chest, it might be bothersome. However, I just do not see it as being a major issue...just enjoy your sparkle...

Instead of placing it up there hang the pendant from a necklace that goes around your neck.

Oooh, for a horifying moment I was thinking you were visualizing pierced nips. Don''t worry Kenny, I WAS thinking only of a chain and pendant deal--nothing exotic for now! LMAO

Naw, it''s not a major issue. Just something that crossed my mind.

I don''t really think that there needs to be a corelation. In fact, I think bigger cleavage would detract from the jewels, but that''s just me.....


I say wear it, no matter what!
