Two carats of fine quality diamonds are used to make this stunning, shared prong style diamond cross pendant. Each of the diamonds is about 0.18 carats, near colorless and much better than eye clean. This means that they are big, brilliant and breathtaking. The cross measures 1 1/8" long so while the diamond presence is impactful, the piece is quite wearable, not gaudy at all. The shared prong setting holds the diamonds securely while using less metal (than a channel setting for example), allowing more of the diamonds to show and do what they do best, sparkle! Also available in platinum.
