A pendant is a type of necklace in which a jewel, fob or jeweled motif hangs on an otherwise unadorned chain. Derived from both Latin and French, it basically means ‘to hang down’, it is a loose-hanging piece of jewelry, generally attached by a small loop to a necklace, when the ensemble may be known as a “pendant necklace”. A pendant is one of the earliest types of bodily adornment. A pendant, by itself, is one fashion statement that will never go out of style.
A pendant can be made out of both inexpensive and expensive metals. Some of them are studded with precious gemstones, while some are simply made out of precious metals. These pendants for necklaces are available and found in many different sizes and designs. Some pendants might have a certain meaning to them, while others are only meant to look decorative. The heart shaped, or the butterfly shaped pendants are very popular, as are the initial letters engraved ones.
In the world of jewelry, a pendant can be worn in different ways. It is either a complete necklace, with the jewel and the chain, or the jewel alone. Customers buy pendants by themselves as they can mix and match from their existing range of chains or buy a different one altogether. Certain pendants are made with a pin-back as well as a loop for a chain and can be worn either as a brooch or a necklace.
Pendants serve as a single, dazzling highlight to a necklace, with a multitude of designs and sizes available. Below are some of the most popular pendant styles: Solitaire Pendant, Pearl or Colored Gemstone Solitaire, Gemstones Pendant, Metal Design Pendant, et al.
