I am working with the wonderful Becca at Whiteflash to make a custom DBTY necklace. I am leaning towards 10 or 12 pointers, 5 or 7 stones, 16”. I would really appreciate any photos of DBTY necklaces. This necklace will be to celebrate a milestone birthday and a baby on the way!

I have no input yet, but following this thread! I am working on one as well. I have length figured out so far lol and also narrowed down to stones of either 10 or 12 points each. About the chain thickness, I was thinking that I will do 1.5 mm like diamondseeker’s (thanks @diamondseeker) But I am wondering if I should go ever so slightly thinner like 1.4 because my stones are smaller?
Hoping others will chime in here and post !

As far as I know, the chain choices are 1mm, either 1.2 or 1.3mm (can't recall which it is), and then 1.5mm. I mentioned in another reply to you that the chains on my 2 pendants on the right side of my top jewelry tray have the 1.2/1.3 mm chains so you can see the difference. I think I would go to with 1.2/1.3 mm for 10-12 point diamonds and 1.5 mm for 14-15 points and up. But either of you would need to ask WF about that middle size chain and if they can order it.

Thanks so much! I’m looking back at the photo now and starting too feel like things are getting figured out.

-16" necklace, handmade bezels

Orientation: One diamond centered in the front of the necklace other diamonds to be spaced 1.5 inches apart from each other
I have this necklace 5 years now and it’s one of my most worn pieces! Here is a pic as well.

Beautiful!

I love seeing everyone's DBTY necklaces and necklace/bracelet sets. They are on my wishlist for the future too, so its fun seeing the variety of what can be made.

@ac117 yours is incredible! I ordered mine with 12 pointers 1.5” apart. Is yours the 1mm chain?

Thank you so much @diamondseeker2006 - yours is one of my inspirations. It is stunning! ☺ May I asked why you chose a slightly thicker chain?

Thank you! My experience with very thin chains is that they tangle more easily. Plus, I had a 36" dbty necklace made first and felt a 1mm chain was not sturdy enough. My bracelet also has the 1.5mm chain, so naturally I wanted my 17" one to have the same chain. It's still thin, just a little more durable than the 1mm.

Thanks! Yours is going to be beautiful! Yes, mine is the 1mm chain. I’ve never had any problems with it but I would probably consider a thicker chain for a long necklace.
