The one I wear daily is this:

It was a gift from my husband for my 30th birthday. He designed it himself, then had it custom made for me. It's a cat's eye (reflective of my love for all cats) and the stone is a very clean, untreated emerald. The only time I take it off is when I want to put something else on, which is a very rare occurrence. Over the years it has started to feel like an integral part of me and I can't imagine being without it.

@Inked what size (mm wide) is your paperclip chain? I LOVE the proportions with the pendant! I'd love to know where you got it also :kiss2:

LOL! I didnt realize ! I felt like, gold is gold and I liked the shape of the clips so why not!? I had really wanted a vintage one with the dog clip but my husband is not into gifts at all, i was lucky to get this!

I love all your beautiful neck shots, those never work for me for some reason ;-). I have two daily drivers, a fancy faint pink pear on a Russian pink gold chain and a freshwater pendant from Heart of Water. I like to mix the metals of the pendant and chain.

Thanks! I like it. It’s hard to photograph without giving it a crushed ice look that it doesn’t really have.

The color was a nice surprise, I just bought it as a vintage piece. You can see it best on the back of our crystal dragon ;-).

I love pear cut diamonds, and this with that little bit of pink is just soooo beautiful

My everyday necklaces! Rose gold bezel heart (Jewels by Grace) and my new yellow gold dagger pendant (DRU). I added it to a yellow gold chain and disk I had made on Etsy that reads “Let me fall if I must fall; the one I will become will catch me.” ❤️ A0E16099-A2AC-4707-A080-70D156786BA8.png

My everyday necklace was converted from a ring my mom gave me. The ring was not my style, and the prongs were horribly crooked. The center diamond is a wonky, warm, old cut (I think OMC). I asked David to create an imperfect/more organic bezel for the pendant to match the imperfect diamond.

thanks for answering, I just sent him a very similarly shaped 0.63 old mine cut to do a different pendant design with so wanted to get an idea of size. It looks great on you!

Thank you =)2 I had no idea I liked old cuts until I dug this out of the jewelry box and fell in love with the wonkiness and warmth! Can't wait to see your pendant!

Thanks! I have been obsessed with old cuts since around 2010 or so, they are addictive!

I know this doesn't compare to what most of you have, but it means a lot to me. I have an old 6 stone pendant that sort of resembles the ones called Journey, I think I've worn it twice. I have a half carat single diamond choker that I wore occasionally. But then my husband gave me this 24k gold chain that I've worn ever since. It follows the theme of high purity that he also insisted on for my engagement ring, with it's VVS1 stone. He said it symbolized the purity of our love for each other. So here you have my everyday necklace.

I'll play!

I usually wear one of these:

And occasionally, I stack them!

Please excuse the tatty shirt. It's one of those spring-cleaning days that calls for my go-to tatty attire (Although god knows why I was distracted by jewels instead :lol:)
