From the prehistoric amulets to the modern day name tags, pendant necklaces have long been a favourite amongst jewellery lovers. Whether they're showcasing a fine gemstone, or they're brandishing a style or belief statement, pendants can help give any outfit a twist of personality. Made in modern materials such as silver, copper and rose gold, but also available in timeless golds, antique metals and with natural gemstones, pendant necklaces can span eras and style movements seamlessly. Pick a standout piece and give it a proper debut with just a complimenting cocktail ring, or opt for a simple design and layer it with shorter styles or a choker necklace necklace, the possibilities are endless when it comes to styling pendant necklaces.
Pendant necklaces with catwalk style
Because of their diverse array of designs, pendant necklaces will happily accompany you to an array of different occasions, whether it's to the office during the day, or to a special evening event. Embrace this year's black and white trend with a gold pendant to give it a luxurious feel, or offset the season's favoured military greens with a delicate rose gold pendant. Keep in line with the king of the catwalk, Chanel, and opt for a slogan necklace. Layer with chunky leather stacking bracelets and gold rings to give the look a modern rock chick feel. If you're more minimalist than overstated, pendant necklaces are the perfect choice for a modest but elegant look. Choose a striking pendant with a unique design and pair it with a shirtdress for effortless, up to the minute style.
Pendant necklaces for the romantics
For the romantics at heart, pendant necklaces give you the chance to introduce some precious symbols into your jewellery box. From heart lockets and dreamy butterflies, to cast metal flowers and dainty birds, pendants are the perfect way to showcase something meaningful. Team your favourite design with soft chiffons and one of this season's favourite fabrics, gingham, for a girly, warm-hearted feel. For something bolder, indulge in one of the designer world's most favoured colours of the moment, yellow, and pair a contrasting pastel beaded pendant necklace with some chartreuse fashion. If you'd rather stick to a classic palette, invest in a simple pendant, and use it as a finishing touch with a crisp white shirt, a look that will keep you in timeless grace for years to come.
