    Finally! I received my pendant today from Amy at DKJ, and it's spectacular and a perfect match with the other pieces.

    It's a GOG Ascendancy stone, I SI2, 1.11ct, and it looks AMAZING! White, eye clean, gorgeous light return! The surrounding stones are all G/H, ideal cut, 20 points each, meaning that the ctw is 2.71, or a shade more.

    Set in platinum.

    The ring is a 7.1mm Ceylon sapphire, cut by Andrew Gulig from Gemfix, with 8 x .26 E VS2 BN Sig. cut diamonds. Platinum.

    The earrings are 3.12ctw for the pair, all G stones, except for one H colored center stone. All stones are ideal cut. Platinum. These earrings are my version of the classic solitaire studs.

    Perfect set!

    Beautiful - I’m a sucker for clusters!

    I LOVE the outline of your pendant - it looks to be somewhere between floral and a very soft, fluid octagon. And I love the proportions on your sapphire ring!

    This is the photo that started it all... I took this photo to attach to the thread @missy started about sharing our cluster pieces. When I saw the photo, I realized how out of synch my pendant was with my other pieces. It was also made with a motley crew of diamonds left over from all sorts of projects and I had to bezel the center stone to make it large enough to accommodate the surrounding diamonds.
    The stones it's made of now are a far higher quality and the center stone is much larger, negating the need for the bezel.

    I will probably get it filed down slightly in the V's between the stones to ever-so-slightly emphasize the rounded shape of the outer stones, without making it look too 'daisy-like' - but to all intents and purposes, it's done.

    Here's the old photo, followed by one of its new iteration; I think i was able to retain 3 side stones from the original pendant - the other 5, and the center, are all new. A much better match for my set, don't you think? :)

    ETA tcw went from 2.31 to 2.71 - a nice little jump!

    Sure can, @Sparkles88 :)

    My apologies for the hairspray which is dulling up the back of the earrings!
