WHAT TO KNOW CONCERNING DIAMOND PENDANTS.
When it comes to women, pendants and necklaces are very important fashion statement. At this, we are not talking about any other pendant but the diamond pendants. They can exist in the form of exquisite and understated elegance to eye-blinding fashion statements grand enough for a Hollywood style red carpet entrance.
It does not matter whether the diamond is mounted alone as a solitaire setting or in an elaborate halo design, a diamond necklace transcends beyond fashion fads. Besides complementing an outfit, diamond pendants can also be used as a status symbol and a sign of privilege and wealth. Needless to say, choosing the right design to match your style takes time and careful consideration. Before choosing a diamond pendant, you should know the following:
Ensure that you understand The Basics
Like the process of selecting a diamond for a ring, the same is true when it comes to picking one for a necklace. The basics of how diamonds are graded and valued are based on the four Cs of color, cut, clarity and carat. Before you head into a store or shop online, it would be a good idea to spend a little time reading up on these topics.
Age of the Person Going To Wear the Pendant
What appeals to your mother may not be to your teenage friend’s liking. As the saying goes, one man’s meat is another man’s poison. Elegance and sophistication in a piece of jewelry is usually what older women look for. On the other hand, younger girls tend to like designs that are fun and trendy. The bottom line is; make sure you find out what your recipient prefers before you actually buy jewelry for them.
Consider Recipient’s Sense of Fashion
If you’re buying a piece of jewelry for someone else and not yourself, it may be hard to know their style preference unless the person is very close to you. In that case, you can look through their jewelry collection for a particular style that they do not already own. Most women like to have something to wear and match for different types of occasions. So, that’s a pretty handy factor to keep in mind if you have no idea where to start.
The Length and Type of Chain Design
Ultimately, the location at which a pendant rests on the chest is determined by the chain’s length and this brings us to the next point. The type of clothing worn with a necklace determines how long the chain should ideally be. For instance, if you’re going to wear clothing that covers the neck (e.g. turtle neck sweaters), you should choose a longer chain. If you are wearing short sun dresses, shorter chains are preferred.
