How to Choose a Pendant
Even if you are not shopping for the biggest diamond pendant, it is still important that you choose the jewelry wisely. Even if you narrow your search to diamond pendants, there are many other factors to consider.
Look for the shape you like. Pedants come in virtually every conceivable shape. You can also ask a jeweler to make a custom shape. Remember that the stone will be the focal point of the piece, so choose it well.
Next you have to select the setting. It is matter of personal preference. You should also examine the chain’s length. The stone should fall on the right place on your chest.
Next you have to think about the diamonds. Do you want a single large diamond on the pendant? Or would you like several small diamonds? You can also have a combination of the two; a large diamond surrounded by small stones.
A large diamond doesn’t always mean it is more expensive. The clarity and color will also play a factor. If other stones are included in the pendant, the cost will go up. The type of diamond you choose is also important. Colored diamonds are usually more expensive than fancy or colorless ones.
There is no telling how long Lil Jon will have the biggest diamond pendant in the world. As he himself stated in the interview, it probably won’t be long before other rappers try to come up with something bigger.
