The Diamond Necklace Gift Guide

 

The diamond necklace is the perfect in-between gift: when you’re dating, it can be a serious, thoughtful gift without the emotional attachment of giving a ring when you’re not quite ready to propose. Not everyone feels comfortable in earrings or bracelets, but diamond necklaces are universally flattering and easy to wear. But diamond necklaces come in many sizes and styles, from the tiniest solitaire pendant to statement necklaces that cover the entire neck. How to figure out which diamond necklace is which? Follow this simple guide.

For the necklace novice:

A single diamond in a simple setting, suspended on a delicate chain, is the perfect starter necklace. Available in many styles and settings, this kind of necklace can even take the place of an engagement ring for someone who doesn’t want to wear one on her finger; the diamond can always be re-set onto a ring band if she changes her mind.

For the intermediate:

Although it is still simple and easy to wear, a diamond pendant is a somewhat more involved diamond necklace. There are pendants in every shape and style imaginable, from hearts, flowers and circles to shapes with symbolic and traditional meanings. You can choose one with personal significance to you, or take the whole diamond necklace up a notch and custom-design one to meet your specifications. Either way, fans of fresh, trendy design will most appreciate a creative pendant diamond necklace.

For the advanced:

Like a tennis bracelet, a diamond eternity necklace is a strong but versatile fashion statement. Consisting of an unbroken chain of diamonds held together by nearly-invisible settings, this kind of diamond necklace is destined to become a family heirloom, due to its timeless appeal and simple stylishness. This diamond necklace will be appreciated by those with a taste for simple, classic styles and vintage jewelry.

For the truly bold:

While styles like this may not be for everybody, all the time, statement necklaces are becoming increasingly trendy and wearable. Paired with a simple dress and toned down jewelry, a diamond necklace of this size and complexity becomes surprisingly easy to pull off. Consider a necklace like this for someone who appreciates serious bling.
