Skills such as metal manipulation and gemstone polishing would have been fine-tuned as they were passed onto younger generations and these skilled artisans became the first true Jewellers. From then to modern times the Pendant has been a tried and true staple in any jewellery collection. The 19th and 20th centuries brought us some of the finest crafted jeweled pendants we have ever seen. From a stunning 25ct diamond chandelier necklace gracing the stage on Elizabeth Taylor, or the statement Diamond Collar of Kim Kardashian West, the pendant and necklace are mainstays of fashion and luxury.
The power of the pendant is the limitless extravagance it affords the wearer. Unlike other jewellery pieces such as rings and earrings for example, functionality is not an issue when designing a pendant or necklace. A neckpiece can be as large, heavy, decorative and as purely indulgent as her inner goddess could dream. Alternatively, a pendant can be a sophisticated everyday piece such as a solitaire on a slim chain to add some sparkle to any outfit.
Pendants are typically a little girl’s first jewellery piece made of beads and plastic, why not bring it full circle and with a gold and diamond pendant as the special gift to commemorate a momentous occasion, such as graduation, wedding gift or first child.
