    I wanted to share the results of this project. I posted a bit ago for help choosing a style and metal for this pendant. I was taking my late mother's diamond solitaire and having it made in to a bezel pendant, but I realized along the way that I didn't want a stock pendant that hundreds of others might have... I wanted a special "something" to it. I ended up having a custom mounting made at my local jeweler and I just picked it up. I think he did a great job bringing my vision in to reality and I Iove the final result. Here are the CAD images and the final product; my cell phone camera makes the diamond look yellowish but it's actually quite white. I don't know the full stats on it though as it was my Mom's but I know it's around .6 - .7 carats.

    That is a beautiful pendant to honor your Mom, I love the heart at the bottom! What a thoughtful way to keep her close to your heart. I also made a pendant with my Mom's solitaire 4 years ago =)
