I received a pendant a while back and I can't figure out how to wear it. →
[More:]There's a huge amethyst-colored stone (there's a possibility that it actually is an amethyst) surrounded by sterling-silver setting that looks kind of like vines. The whole thing is about two inches long. The stone, so that it's all sparkly on the front of the pendant, is kind of conical on the back of the pendent, with lots of facets.
The problem is, the conical bit sticks out far enough that the pendent doesn't lie flat -- it tips to one side or the other when I wear it and it looks silly. Also, there's a huge hoop at the top of the pendant that also sticks way out on the back, which adds to the instability.
1. Is this just a badly designed pendant?
2. Is this not actually a pendant? The hoop at the top of it is large enough that I'm wondering if this piece of jewelry has some other use of which I am not aware.
3. Is it a properly designed pendent, and I just need either a larger chain to balance it out or need to wear it higher or lower or something?
I don't get it.
