Hi all, I'm looking at getting a yellow gold V-shaped bar necklace (eternity style) made, that would be gypsy set with red-pink spinel.

In case my description isn't clear, here is a basic bar necklace set with stones (but picture 5 stones filling up more of the bar):



And also picture it in a V-shape:



I'll post the two options next...

That could be it, or I was considering adding a drop below using one of two tourmalines. The smaller 3.5mm melee stones arranged in a V as would be in the bar, with the option drops below. First is a faceted pink tourmaline:



The second is a larger tourmaline cab:



Both are brazilian material.

Also to consider - I actually think the cab looks best, but that stone would also be amazing for a large ring...

The cab really stands out in your pendant mock up.

In my opinion the cab overpowers the whole design, the whole V shape (which is very modern and minimalist), looks too big and it's not in the same family of shapes. If it were smaller and maybe rose cut/slice or the oval one you already have or nothing at all.
You could also do separate necklaces and layer them or wear them on their own.
But this is just my opinion, you should do what your heart tells you :wavey:
