Diamond Pendant Jewelry

Types of Pendants

A pendant (from Old French) is a hanging object, generally attached to a necklace or an earring. In modern French this is the gerund form of "hanging" (also meaning "during"). A classic necklace that might otherwise appear shapeless is suddenly livened up by a circle pendant or heart pendant. The pendants themselves come in all shapes, sizes, and styles. For the ultimate in class, a diamond pendant can be a stunning option. James Allen offers a wide selection of striking diamond pendants including diamond heart pendants, diamond solitaire pendants, or you can design your own. To design your own pendant, first choose your ideal setting and then choose your perfect diamond. Each diamond pendant will be tailored to your specifications. The diamonds are available in pear, round, square, princess cut, emerald square, cushion cut and marquis shapes and set in platinum, white, and yellow gold.

Diamond Pendants: The 4C's

When choosing a diamond, keep in mind the importance of diamond attributes called the 4Cs. Knowing these qualities (Cut, Color, Clarity, and Carat Weight), which affect a diamond's beauty, can help in choosing a diamond that is right for you. Other characteristics include the diamond's grading. Always be sure to choose a certified diamond, which includes a diamond grading report that describes the diamond's exact measurements, weight, cut, and overall quality. All of James Allen's diamonds are GIA or AGS certified.
