A formal evening outfit just isn’t complete without the darling of fashion – a diamond necklace. Diamond necklaces simply complete the elegance that every woman wants to express on those special occasions. Like the Mona Lisa without her smile, the look wouldn’t be the same without this critical piece of the puzzle. From single diamond solitaire necklaces to multi-diamond encrusted displays, diamond necklaces will always occupy that soft spot in a woman’s heart.
What better feeling could there be than that of placing a beautiful strand of diamonds around the neck of the one you continue to fall more in love with each and every day. Her reaction to such a gift will be overwhelming and she will always remember that special moment.
Diamond Necklaces vs. Diamond Pendants: buddhist beads
History is on the side of diamond necklaces. You might recall a famous blue diamond that eventually became known as the Hope Diamond. It is currently set in a beautiful, diamond studded necklace and is owned by the Smithsonian. It is the epitome of elegance and the standard bearer for elegant diamond necklaces.
Where a diamond jewelry necklace has diamonds throughout the necklace strand, diamond pendants typically feature diamonds in the “pendant” portion while the necklace is gold or silver and doesn’t contain diamonds. Both offer elegant and beautiful, although different looks, for either formal or semi formal occasions respectively.
Choker or Full Length Necklaces:
Diamond choker necklaces hug the neck and give a different look than full length diamond necklaces. They are typically 14 to 16 inches in length and they can have a length adjustment apparatus close to the clasp. If the recipient has a long neck, a diamond choker can look especially elegant. If a shorter neck, then a more thin choker is desired along with, perhaps, a pendant so a lengthening effect is achieved.
If a person is tall, they can wear any length necklace they desire, from a choker to a full length necklace up to 40 inches or longer. A choker will de-emphasize one’s height and place the emphasis on the elegant neckline. It will also focus more attention to the face. If an average size person is wishing to complement their attire, a slightly longer length necklace will be perfect. If the person is a plus size then a longer length necklace is desirable to lengthen the person’s appearance. The same applies for shorter women who should strive to wear an 18 to 24 inch diamond necklace so they appear taller than they actually are.
As we get older, we lose some of the youthful appearance we once had. By wearing a longer necklace, emphasis can be placed on the necklace instead of the neck and face. A pendant dangling from the necklace can also serve to take more attention from the facial area.
