I’m trying to find ideas and decide what I want to re-set my grandma’s diamond I inherited into. It’s currently just in a gold 4-prong solitaire pendent setting.
I don’t know much about the actual diamond, I think it’s about .4 ct.
Here are some ideas I’ve found so far:

Those are all great ideas but personally I prefer the setting its already in. I would just change it to white gold. Lucky girl! Have fun!

I really like what it is currently set in because it’s so classic. I know everyone’s tastes differ though. 🙂 #2 is pretty, although I think the diamond kind of gets lost in all the metal. This pendant looks similar to some of your options, but I think it showcases the diamond better. Beautiful ring, btw! Whatever you choose will be beautiful! Are you going to wear the pendant for your wedding?

I agree, the current setting would be beautiful in white gold..the diamond really stands out!

I too prefer the current setting. If the color of the metal is bothering you, then maybe just reset it into white metal as the other posters are suggesting.
If that is just absolutely not what you want to do, then I’d go with setting #1.
