I have a loose peacock Tahitian pearl that has sentimental value, as I got it on a trip to Tahiti with my mom. It has lovely luster and color, but is only clean on about 1/2 of the surface. I would like to put it in a pendant and am considering a bezel setting with a diamond halo. It is round and 9mm. I don''t want to do a simple drop because I don''t want it to move around and show the marked side.

I really want to make it into something fabulous since the trip was so great. I am more concerned with a beautiful necklace than the cost.

Any input on a black pearl in this setting (I can''t find any examples on the web) or other suggestions would be much appreciated.
