    After my grandfather passed away this fall, I decided to use some of the money he left me to get a piece of jewelry in memoriam. I asked PSers for input as to what this project should be, and the consensus was overwhelmingly in favor of getting a solitaire pendant to replace the one he and my grandmother had given me years ago that was lost last summer.

    I asked BGD to make this pendant for me, and Brian did a wonderful job. This was my first time working with Brian and Lesley, and they were as lovely as everyone described here. I decided on the Barbara pendant because I loved the way the setting looked, and Lesley assured me that this design would prevent the pendant from flipping, which I was concerned about.

    The pendant turned out beautifully. I am totally in love! Lesley was absolutely right--it doesn't flip at all. It sparkles so much, and the size is perfect for me. It's like wearing a little star around my neck, and I know my grandfather would have loved it, too.

    Stats on my stone:

    .757 ct
    Brian Gavin Signature H&A
    AGS 000
    5.86 x 5.92 x 3.58 mm
    J VS2

    It's set in BGD's platinum Barbara setting, on a 16-inch platinum chain with a jump ring at 15", which is where I've been wearing it most of the time. I have lots of pictures; I'll start with Brian's glamor shots . . .

    I am loving this pendant!! I just looked at the other poster who bought some for her bridesmaids. What a nice gift. I have actually been contemplating buying this too, so it''s nice to see other pics.

    I think a piece of jewelry in memorium of your grandfather is lovely. My mom bought a necklace for herself and a band for me when my grandparents passed away. It is something that you''ll have forever to remember him by.

    Size comparison with my EC (2.12 ct E VVS2). The focus in this pic is a little off, but I think the pendant holds its own.
