What to do with 6 or 7 tiny diamonds? Any ideas?

DH recently bought me a gorgeous, very fine diamond tennis bracelet. It's too big for my wrist so the jeweller is lopping a bit off. This leaves me with 6 or 7 little diamonds. Jeweller phones yesterday to see what I wanted to do with them. I have no clue. They are brilliant cut, very sparkly, high quality and consistent colour. The whole bracelet was .75 carat if that gives you any idea of the size of the stones.
Jewellery experts and aficionados, any ideas? I am not very creative and terrible at imagining how things will look so clean out of ideas.

Swallow them and make sparkly shit grin

Have them turned into earings or a pendant?

Have them put into your teeth!

If the whole bracelet was 0.75 carat, they are tiny.
How about setting them in a ring?

Yes they might be pretty set kind of randomly into a white gold band. Wonder how much that would cost

Have you any other jewellery that you don't wear or bits that are broken?

I had my Dads broken wedding ring, Grandmas engagement ring and a few broken pieces, odd earrings etc made into a ring.

diamond bubble ring

I think it could look very pretty scattered all over smile

half eternity ring?
My eternity ring is 3 very small saphires, then 3 very small diamond repeated round the whole band. gets lots of comments (its also my Grandmothers, so very old)

There's a workshop in Birmingham that do one day courses on ring and earring making. Make your own diamond ring!

A plain band with tiny diamonds scattered. Or something like this

Have them set into a small flat circle and have it dangle off the fastening if the bracelet?

I have a 7 stone eternity ring... would look fab to match the bracelet.

I'd probably get them set into a pendant or ring. Lucky you to have such a dilemma! smile Then you'd have two pieces of matching jewellery each with a little story to tell.

Some lovely ideas thank you! After careful consideration, I'm going with the vajazzle grin

SoupDragon Wed 24-Apr-13 15:45:27

Good choice!
