Looking for pendant in SF

Not sure where to post this, but I am hoping you all can help me. DH wants to buy me a special pendant for my first mother's day :love:
I love Beverley K's style, but most of his pendants are quite small (smaller than a dime). I am looking for something larger but in a similar style (closer to a nickel or slightly larger). We don't really want to design our own pendant and are hoping to find the perfect pendant already-made. Any idea where to look in the SF area? TIA!

ETA: I also love Beaudry's style, but Bev K is more at our price point.

Can you all think of any other similar designers??

http://www.briangavindiamonds.com/home/ring-details/?product_id=5458 is one I own. I adore it. You can ask them to add milgrain along all the top and it would be personalized to your taste, and have the vintage look you want. It's a show stopper that always gets compliments.


It's about the size of a quarter. Really makes a lovely piece.

Are you wanting one with a center diamond or just a design more like Gypsy's? The BK pendants can be very large if you supply a very large center stone! :))

Love this one!!! I'm confused on the price though... why is it $7K new? I think it is WG, not plat?

I learned about her when one of our members here got a beautiful pendant a few years ago. Scroll down this page and you'll see it. I remember how beautiful I thought it was. But hers is larger and very :$$): I am sure!

The Neiman Marcus one is set like a pear diamond. Think of it that way!

They are both 18kt white gold. ebay price is for a previously owned pendant. Half price is about right in some cases.

Why would a WG necklace retail for so much though?

I so appreciate all this help from you gals!

Designer markup. Think of Gap jeans for my husband-- 50 bucks. Citzen Jeans--200. :$$):


I adore that pendant. I'd offer 2,500 and see what they counter with. I've seen it in person and it is really something to see!

DS-- I love Penny Preville-- when I find her on ebay as well. Designs arre lovely, but the markup fis just too much for me.

Very pretty - I just don't like round on myself. I also prefer to buy new for this occasion. ;))

I'd send pics of your favorite designs to Brian Gavin Diamonds and see what they propose back to you.

You can get a lovely http://www.briangavindiamonds.com/diamond/diamond-detail/?product_id=AGS-104051366071 .4 for the center and ask for them to design a lovely rose and white gold pendant for you, with milgrain -- in a square shape, or whatever shape you want.

If it were me, that's what I'd do. Ask to speak to Brian directly. You can tell him the PS ladies recommended you speak to him.

See what he proposes back for you. Doesn't cost anything to inquire.

ETA: You can also bring down costs by going with a colored stone as the center-- depending on the colored stone you chose. What is the baby's birthstone?

I completely agree, Gypsy! I can't pay the retail. I love Leslie Greene, too!

I am on a serious pre-owned bug for anything that's not custom. I don't believe in karma or anything like that and like my bling dollars to stretch as far as they can.

That Leslie Greene pendant is my favorite piece of designer jewelry.
