Ha! Missy u posted your comment just as I was posting mine...you pretty much said what I was thinking!missy|1458649746|4009304 said:If you think you will wear and enjoy it as a pendant then yes it is worth the purchase. But not if it will sit unset and unworn. I know you know that but just verbalizing it. Meaning even if the price is good if you will not enjoy and wear it don't keep it. If you love it and will enjoy it then keep it. I think it would make a beautiful pendant necklace in brushed yellow gold.
This is so accurate for me! The same thing has happened to me multiple times, and I hate knowing I have gems that will just sit around and never be set. So to the OP: since you are debating already, I think you likely dont love it but are hoping to love it more once you get it set--which isn't likely. Especially since if you dont LOVE it, you might never get around to setting it.minousbijoux|1458662058|4009420 said:I have found over the years of collecting that there are very few times when a good price makes up for what I'm looking for. That is, I'll see something that is less than ideal that is pretty but I don't love, and then when I'm told the price, I feel like I should get it because its a "good deal." Does the price change anything about the stone? No. Do I grow to love it knowing it was a relative bargain? No. Instead it sits around ignored in the gem tray.
Now that's me. Maybe it is different for you...
