Hi all,

I am trying to find an OEC for a pendant or DBTY necklace. I came across these stones on LT and wanted to get your opinion, since I have no idea what I am looking at. They are being sold as a group of three for $595.

The vendor said that they are sparkly and she doesn't see any dead facets.

- Do you think based on the photos that these stones will perform well in a bezel pendant?
- Is this a good price for these stones
- Any other feedback.

Stone 1

Stone 2

Stone 3

Thanks in advance!

bumping your thread - hoping the experts will chime in. However, I would not purchase a stone with a chip, it's my understanding that the stone could shatter while being set? I could be wrong. Have you tried loveaffairdiamonds or jules by grace? They may have some stones in your price range. Good luck. :wavey:

I don't care for the first stone. I am okay with the others. A tiny chip on a tiny stone, for me, isn't a deal breaker. Just make sure you are working with an experienced bench.

Thanks Queenie and Gypsy for the feedback. I would like the larger stone for the necklace, so I am going to pass this time.
