    Slighty random question I know, but...

    there is some jewellery I am looking at on the internet and the size of the 'pendant' bit is described as being about the size of a dime for a couple of them, and the size of a nickel for another. I know a nickel is bigger, but can someone please give me an idea of the diameter of them?!

    Thanks!!
