1. Victoria Kay 14k Gold Diamond Chai Pendant
Instead of giving “chai” in the form of cash, consider this attractive chai pendant instead. The pendant is made from 14k gold, and features the chai symbol in diamonds. The pendant is available in your choice of white or yellow gold. The diamonds are rated IJ for color, and between I1-I2 for clarity. The pendant comes with a 16 inch chain. The necklace ships in an attractive gift bag, which is a nice added touch. If you like this idea, but want to see more styles before you make a decision, browse more chai pendants on sale here.

2. Roberto Coin ‘Tiny Treasures’ 18k White Gold Diamond Star of David Pendant
This simple Star of David pendant is made from 18k white gold, and features diamonds with a minimum color rating of G-H, and a minimum clarity of SI1. This delicate necklace is perfect for a woman with equally delicate bone structure. One cool thing that we like about Roberto Coin Jewelry is that each piece contains a hidden synthetic ruby. According to ancient myth, a ruby worn close to the skin brings the wearer health, happiness, prosperity, and longevity. The ruby in each piece is tiny, but it’s still a really nice sentiment.
