The Benefits of Lab-Grown Diamond Pendants

While the majority may prefer to purchase natural Earth-mined diamonds for engagement rings, lab-grown diamonds are great for gifting and self purchase. For the same price as one naturally grown diamond jewelry piece, you can often purchase earrings and a pendant. And high quality, well-cut lab diamonds can be every bit as visually beautiful as natural diamonds.
A diamond pendant is a versatile piece of jewelry that can be used as an accent in a number of jewelry styles, and is perfect for today's woman who seeks to expand her jewelry collection.

There is no doubt that diamond pendants are a popular choice for gifts for anniversaries, graduations, birthdays, and other special occasions. Or just for a sparkling fashion statement.
When looking for the perfect pendant, lab-grown diamonds make the perfect choice since they can offer the same quality and brilliance as natural diamonds at a much more affordable price.
The wide variety of settings available online makes it easy to find a piece that matches your personality and style. Below we’ve explored what a lab-grown diamond pendant is, the versatility it presents, and have featured some of our favorite sparkling settings for you to fall in love with.

What Is a Lab-Grown Diamond Pendant?

For any jewelry lover, a spectacular diamond pendant is a must-have. Pendants are small pieces of jewelry (such as an icy lab-grown diamond set in a platinum bezel) attached to an anklet, necklace chain, or bracelet.
In short, a pendant can be hung on a chain from any part of your body, usually via a gold or platinum chain. A 16-inch pendant chain is the standard length, but longer chains are available upon request. At this length, the pendant usually rests comfortably on the collarbone.
The main difference with lab-created pendants is that they feature a lab-grown diamond rather than a natural diamond.
When worn around the neck, your pendant will prominently showcase the diamond you have chosen. It is therefore worth ensuring that you get the finest stone that your budget will allow for. Fortunately, the cost savings provided by lab-grown diamonds allow you to prioritize quality, especially cut quality, resulting in a diamond of outstanding sparkle.

The Versatility of Lab-Grown Pendants

When it comes to pendants, there are so many styles to choose from, ranging from simple, classic designs to ornate, vintage ones. You’ll also see diamond pendants with different types of settings, such as bezel, prong, and pavé.

Considering that the pendant is the focal point that draws the eye in, the chain length becomes crucial. Diamond jewelry trends emphasize adaptability and versatility; it is simple to update a pendant necklace to modern styles and even switch from necklace to bracelet by simply purchasing a different chain length.
Your choice of length and width is purely personal, and you should choose what is right for you. When making your decision, ensure you know exactly how each length will fit on your body and which width you desire.
While icy white (colorless) round brilliant diamonds are by far the most popular diamonds for pendants, lab-grown diamonds are available in various fancy colors, sizes and shapes including; round cuts, princess cuts, cushion cuts, radiants, hearts, ovals, emeralds, and pear-shaped diamonds. Customers and jewelry designers can experiment more and create unique designs because of the availability and affordability of lab created diamonds.
Keep in mind that pendants can be incorporated into other fine pieces of jewelry if preferred.

Lab-Grown Diamond Pendant Inspiration

A bezel setting, where the diamond is set directly into the metal, is generally considered to be a more contemporary style. Whereas a prong setting, much like you might find on a traditional solitaire diamond engagement ring, will give the necklace a more classic feel.
Necklaces are generally low-impact pieces of jewelry. Worn around the neck they are not subject to wear and tear like rings or bracelets. The diamonds and precious metals are therefore less likely to be damaged.
Diamond pendants are most commonly made in Round and Princess cuts, although other shapes like Pear can also be beautiful. We recommend considering a variety of options, and deciding which you prefer.
Almost any jewelry piece available with a feature diamond mounting can be set with lab-grown diamonds. Our most popular pendants at Whiteflash can be the perfect styles for lab-grown diamonds.
Your pendant necklace doesn’t need to be over-the-top to make a statement - but why not take the plunge on that designer setting you’ve been dreaming about or a slightly bigger carat if you can with the savings made by opting for a lab-grown diamond?
From stunning solitaires to beautiful bezels, we’ve featured some of our favorite diamond pendant settings.
