This one!  My favorite shape for a pendant is a pear and this one has the color to pack a punch!  Set in a yellow gold bezel, yum yum!
always saving up for my next piece!

Because it's a gorgeous DBL OMB. Pretty color, good size, and it has fluor.

A little smaller but still a DBL OMB and with a bit more color.

It's a 1ct green yellow radiant. The movie says it all even when it's muted. :P Granted, this only leaves $5 for the setting but I've always been a "blow the budget on the stone then save for the setting" kind of girl.

Ok, so there isn't a stone on the site that wouldn't make a gorgeous pendant, but let's start by narrowing things down a little.

What shape(s) do you like best for pendants? I tend to like something that gives a good spread for its weight, and 'drops' naturally - for me, that's almost always a pear, although I admit to craving an emerald cut pendant at the moment.

Then, think about the setting - if you want something very simple, pick a stone with an awful lot of personality. If you'd like a slightly more detailed setting, you can go for a stone where the colour is the biggest feature.

Does this help any? If you can close your eyes and sort of sneak up on a mental image of the finished 'ideal' pendant, we can start to pin it down a bit more!
