So I know that box chains and basket pendants aren''t the most popular choice around here, but it''s what I kept coming back to and I think I would have regretted it any other way. I''m really loving it!!! I took a LOT of pictures so bear with me....

Btw it''s an AGS0 M SI1 with very strong blue fluorescence, set in white gold, which came unplated. I didn''t ask for it to be unplated, but it is, and I actually think it looks better with the warm color of the stone. You can see the difference between the unplated gold of the pendant and the plated gold of the chain, but in real life it''s not noticeable. Most of the pictures were taken in my bathroom which has yellowish lighting but seemed to be the brightest place I could find. So here she is.....

Showing some pretty sparkle
BEAUTIFUL!! I really love warmer colored stones! I am looking at a K for my e-ring, it''s lovely to see lower colors on PS!

I really like the basket. I think the unplated gold is perfect, actually! It really shows off your stone!

Definitely yummy! Face up it looks very white, but I do see the creaminess with the side pics. Either way this necklace is gorgeous!

I had to be in the extremely yellow bathroom lights to get a good pic, but my skin isn''t really this RED!!!

I like the two outdoor shots in your hand! Maybe you could get a decent neck shot outside?

Much more obvious in this one because the M is a little tilted.

Wow -- I love your pendant! I see arrows in one shot!

And I can''t believe that''s an M -- I want one now!

And now my favorites... the side views. I have to say that I actually really enjoy the warmth of the M. It makes sense because I picked a "diamond white" wedding dress too, which is a little creamy. I think the necklace will match the dress better than my ring!

AmberGretchen, kcoursolle, stacy, littlemissbliss, diamondseeker, and Feralpenchant--- THANK YOU!!! I really am excited to be wearing this, and if it weren''t for the warmth, I couldn''t have afforded it!

Feral-- I needed the bathroom lights because I could see myself in the mirror with my camera that way! I''m not so good at those self pictures:) I think a K e-ring would be beautiful! If I knew then that I liked a little color, I could have gone bigger.

Wow, it''s gorgeous! And I can''t believe how white it faces up! Wear it in good health!

What''s the size of your pendant stone and the size of your e-ring stone, if you don''t mind my asking?
