Choosing A Diamond Pendant
A diamond pendant necklace is one of the classiest and most romantic gifts you can choose, and one that is perfect for any occasion. Because it is not loaded with the symbolic meaning of the solitaire diamond ring, a diamond pendant is a great way to show anyone special in your life—wife or girlfriend, mother or daughter—how much you love her. The following are a few of the major categories of diamond pendants from which you can choose the perfect one for your special gift.
Like the ring with the same name, these diamond pendants suspend a single diamond with a simple setting on a chain. Some solitaire diamond pendants come ready with the center diamond, while others are sold as an empty setting, allowing you to choose your own diamond to fit into the necklace. For the girl with streamlined, glamorous taste, there is nothing like a solitaire pendant to match the one on her finger.
These statement-making diamond pendants take a simple shape, like a flower or heart, and sprinkle it with a shower of tiny diamonds, creating a sparkling diamond surface. Since they are available in many styles and materials, pavé diamond pendants are perfect for the girl looking for one-of-a-kind beauty to wear around her neck.
Seen on almost every celebrity who has walked the red carpet in style, this classic diamond pendant suspends a center diamond inside a halo of smaller stones, often in a pear or teardrop shape. A halo diamond pendant is the perfect companion to a stunning pair of chandelier earrings and a perfectly elegant dress.
These simple but beautiful pendant necklaces, available in white and yellow gold (and even sterling silver) use well-placed diamond chips to add a dash of sparkle and style without an overwhelming price. Their durability and affordability make them the perfect choice for a little girl’s first piece of real jewelry—a piece she will wear with pride long into her adult life.
One of the most popular diamond pendant necklace styles, the heart pendant is a simple expression of love that is equally appropriate for your mother, and your girlfriend. It’s perfect for a romantic anniversary gift as well. Hundreds of styles exist, ranging from the sweet and simple to the dramatic and abstract. Many of them utilize diamonds in pavé or bezel settings, marrying one of the greatest symbols of love, the heart, to its natural partner, the diamond.
