So a few weeks ago, we wandered into Tiffanys just to browse and being in a good shopping mood around beautiful sparkly things, wound up with the Tiffany's medium open circle diamond pendant despite having no agenda or plan to buy anything. After some thought my significant other decided she wasn't sure it was worth the extra markup (although definitely very beautiful) and she returned it. I then decided that I could likely have it made with H&A melee that would be equally beautiful for fraction of the price but upon inquiring and looking around, I realized Whiteflash had nearly the exact pendant "Circle of Life" (shared prong instead of 3 prong and slightly different attachment of the necklace to the pendant) 1.0 ctw ACA F/G VS in platinum significantly less. Pendant now is in hand and definitely equally beautiful. To me, looks slightly smaller (maybe some optical effect of the way the melee was set) but diameter is exactly the same and ctw is slightly more (1 vs 0.93). Overall we are very happy with the decision and thought I would share since I couldn't find many neck shots of the WF pendant. Because of the great deal and good decision, I bought her a purse she had been wanting the LV Melie, all for about the same price as we originally spent for the Tiffany's pendant, so definitely was a win win for us! If anyone is interested in neck shots of the Tiffany's pendant for comparison, just ask and I can share. Again it was very beautiful and our SA at Tiffany's was awesome but I think we made a good decision marking 2 things off her wish instead of just one.
