Your Necklace and Pendant Shopping Guide

Necklaces are the most popular and classic style of jewelry. A nice necklace can add a touch of sophistication and elegance to your wardrobe. Accessorizing with a necklace is a great way to dress up any outfit. There are many different types of necklaces, chains and pendants available, and the right piece of jewelry for you will depend on your personal style and budget. Here are a few things to consider when shopping for a necklace or pendant from the industry experts at Marlow’s Diamond & Design.

Pendant Styles

The pendant refers to the gemstone that provides the centerpiece of your necklace. Pendants come in a variety of materials, shapes, sizes and colours. When choosing a pendant, it’s important to think about what function you want it to serve. Do you want a pendant that makes a big statement? In that case, you may want to choose a larger or more colorful gemstone. If you’re looking for a more subtle accessory, choose a smaller gemstone with in subdued hue. Gemstones vary in price depending on colour, cut, size and rarity, so keeping your budget in mind when choosing your perfect pendant.

Chain Styles

The chain of your necklace is often as important as your pendant. When picking a chain for your necklace, think about how it will look with your pendant. Does the style compliment the pendant, or does it clash? Does the chain draw attention away from the pendant? Another thing to consider when choosing a chain is length. Do you want your pendant to rest along your collarbone, or do you want a longer necklace? These considerations will change how your necklace looks with the rest of your clothes.
