My old engagement ring was sitting in a drawer since 1990, after my divorce. I have since remarried and wanted to do something with this marquise diamond and thought about a necklace. I wanted something simple so I had the same jeweler in Chicago that designed my 9 stone ring create this bezel set necklace. This is the picture that he sent me. The stone is .81, VS2, F color. I'm looking forward to getting it in the next few days. I looked into selling the diamond but of course, you get so little for them. I used white gold and a 20" chain since I wanted it a bit longer.

Thanks everyone for the kind words. I'm so excited to get it and will post more pics.

pearaffair, please post pics of your necklace when you get it. I debated on the bezel or the side prongs and in the end I felt the bezel was more my style. I'm sure yours will be gorgeous!

RL Jewelers on Jewelers Row on Wabash Avenue in downtown Chicago. They have a small booth in a larger store. They are right in front at the window. Great guys to deal with and excellent pricing.
