Hi everyone!

Long time no see.

Since hounding these forums daily in mid-2008, I have gotten married to my wife and we have just been honeymooning ever since (not literally, of course. ;))

Her birthday is this week and I am considering a diamond pendant for her. I am considering around a 0.50 carat diamond in a halo pendant in white gold. My only concern is, of course, price. In order to get the size I want for the pendant, I would have to go down to a G/H/I color and possibly even an SI2 clarity. Are these characteristics OK for a diamond that will be in a pendant? Her engagement ring is an F/VS2, so I don''t want the pendant to fall too far behind.

Thanks all!

I think those specs would be great for a pendant

Not only would those specs be great in a pendant, but the would be more than fine for an engagement ring as well (provided the SI is eye-clean). My pendant is J/SI1 and my engagement ring is I/VVS2.

MANY CONGRATS Brilyant and good to see you! I hope the wedding went well!

Yes indeed, those specs are fine for a pendant. Would you like some suggestions of diamonds which might suit? What is the budget?

Thanks, everyone!

Lorelei - the wedding was awesome! It was a ton of fun and everyone had a spectacular time. Going to Maui for our honeymoon was surreal the day after. :)

The budget for the pendant is around $1000-1200, give or take a $100 or so (for the setting and diamond).

She likes this Tiffany's pendant, but in white gold (http://www.tiffany.com/Shopping/Item.aspx?sku=23954133&mcat=148210&cid=287465&fromGrid=1&search_params=s+5-p+2-c+287465-r+101323351-x+-n+6-ri+-ni+0-t+), but I am sure a forum favorite can reproduce it for much less (the Tiffany's one comes with a 0.12 carat diamond for that price! Wow, even though it's in platinum it is still quite pricey.)

Thank you. :)

This one is considerably cheaper and we would need to confirm the numbers as the report isn't clear, but it could make a decent pendant diamond as it has shallower proportions, it could be very bright and brilliant.

Wow, thank you for those. I really like the last WF one. I think it''s a nice combination of size, color and clarity. I will have it looked at to see if it''s eye clean.

UPDATE: I have placed an order with White Flash for a Halo Bezel pendant in 18k white gold. I went with this stone:

WF 0.464 F/SI1

Very exciting! Thanks everyone!
