Raymond Lee Jewelers: Dazzling Diamond Pendants to Enhance Your Look
Jewelry pieces are always great gifts, especially for women. Whether it’s a birthday, anniversary, Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Christmas, New Year’s, or some other meaningful event, you can never go wrong with a diamond pendant. There are countless options when it comes to diamond pendants, so you’ll most certainly find something special to impress your loved one or friend.
How to Distinguish Between Diamond Pendants and Diamond Necklaces
For some people, pendants and necklaces are more or less the same thing. However, there’s a distinction. Pendants are distinct items which can be purchased separately or together with a chain on which they can be hung. Diamond pendants are made of a metal frame or setting, onto which a diamond or several diamonds are mounted. Necklaces, on the other hand, are one piece jewelry items. They can comprise one or more diamonds and together with the metal setting and the chain create an ensemble.
Just like charms, pendants come in a myriad of designs, sizes, shapes and styles. They can be bigger or smaller, vintage or modern, figurative or abstract. Classic diamond pendant designs include hearts, plain or stylized, flowers, circles, stars or initials.
Diamond Pendant Selection Tips
When shopping for diamond pendants knowing what to focus on can go a long way. Here are some tips that will make your task easier.
Stone(s), Setting, Chain
If you plan to purchase a diamond pendant, you need to find a few things about the stone or stones you’re looking at. You want to buy a quality pendant, which will create a beautiful memory, and bring joy to the recipient who will be happy to wear it. You don’t want your gift to end up on the bottom of a drawer. For that, check the diamond’s 4 Cs: clarity, color, carat and cut. Clear, flawless diamonds are the ideal, but they’re not always easy to find. Besides that, they are considerably more expensive. However, if you take your time and explore your options thoroughly, you’ll most certainly find a quality stone, or several, which will meet your expectations. Stones with small imperfections that are well-cut can make great pendants, and are less expensive. When it comes to diamond color, colorless diamonds are regarded as the most valuable, but there’s an increasing demand for colored diamonds, as well. As for the cut, it is a fundamental attribute of any diamond because the stone’s radiance and fire are uncovered by the way it is cut. Last but not least, don’t forget to check the diamond carat.
The remaining piece of the puzzle, when buying a diamond pendant, is the chain. You can purchase it together with the pendant from the same retailer, or separately. When choosing the chain, make sure the metal it is made of matches the setting of the diamond. For instance, if the metal frame which holds the stone is made of white gold, you might want to get a chain from a similar material. However, if you have a two tone setting, you have more options as far as the chain is concerned. Length is another factor to take into account. Some women prefer shorter chains, which are called chokers, while others would rather wear a longer chain with their diamond pendants. In this latter category of pendant chains, you can choose between princess or opera chains.
Match the Pendant with the Recipient
A diamond pendant is an accessory which can be matched with almost any outfit, making the wearer look more elegant and able to express their personality. However, to achieve that, the diamond pendant needs to fit her style and features. For example, a diamond pendant on a choker chain will look best on a woman with a longer neck. It highlights her neckline, and draws the eyes to her face. If the diamond pendant is coupled with a matching pair of diamond earrings, the effect will be double. The shape of the face is also important when choosing the length of a pendant. Round faces are elongated by longer pendants, which better for a woman’s overall figure.
