What is unique about diamond necklaces?
Diamond necklaces are valuable items cherished and worn with pride and pleasure. Diamonds, the birthstone for the zodiac sign Aries, are the hardest, naturally occurring substance we know, which accounts for the famous saying, ""Diamonds are forever"".
Fine gemstone necklaces vary in length and are usually made of precious metals like sterling silver, gold, white gold and rose gold. They may be crafted in simple or elaborate designs and set with natural or lab-grown diamonds in fancy and faceted cuts.

Types of diamond necklaces
Necklaces set with precious gemstones vary in style, setting, and price. As you shop for the perfect choice, you will find several designs that grab your attention. Whether it is a simple gold chain with a floating diamond, a diamond letter pendant or a diamond number pendant, a dressy piece for formal occasions, or a classically elegant one for everyday use—you will find one that suits your fancy right here.
Gold and diamond necklaces
Most diamond necklaces are crafted in 14K and 18K gold. Gold and diamond necklaces come in yellow, white and rose gold colours. The contrast of diamonds in yellow or rose gold is very alluring. However, opt for a white gold necklace chain if you prefer an icy brilliance and a subtler look.
Silver diamond necklaces
While diamond necklaces are preferably made in gold, you will also find silver diamond necklaces. The affordable price tag is the most significant advantage of diamond necklaces made of 925 sterling silver. These are usually rhodium-plated to give a white-gold-like finish and to improve durability.
Diamond pendants for gold or silver chain necklaces
Diamond pendant necklaces comprise one or more sparkling diamonds on chains.
The diamond circle pendant symbolise continuity; the pendant is circular and set with a continuous circle of diamonds.
Also popular are diamond heart pendants symbolising love. These would be solid hearts pave-set with round brilliant diamonds or an open-heart pendant through which you can thread the necklace chain.
Necklaces with diamond letters or initials and numbers are also on-trend and preferred by many women and men who like personalised jewelry.
Solitaire or floating diamond necklace has a single diamond pendant. Imagine a single white diamond pendant set in white gold hung on a fine white gold chain. It gives an illusion of the diamond ""floating"". The diamond pendant in a solitaire necklace may be small (0.5 ct - 1 ct.) or large (1 ct. - 2 ct.) in prong or claw or partial bezel settings.
Stylish necklace designs with hot diamonds
Diamond necklace styles range from simple chains with a solitaire diamond pendant to elaborate designs with a mix of precious gemstones and diamonds.
Diamond line necklaces, also called tennis necklaces, symbolise eternal and steadfast love. They feature a continuous row of diamonds and fasten with a hook or clasp.
A diamond choker necklace is short and rests just above your collarbone. It is an impressive piece of diamond jewelry that may have one or many rows of diamonds.
Diamond and pearl necklace are forever! You can never go wrong with a diamond and pearl necklace, as the visual impact of these gems is stunning and breathtakingly beautiful. The soft organic lustre and smoothness of pearls are an excellent contrast to the diamonds' sharper, faceted glitter.
White diamonds with coloured gemstone necklaces are fascinating and impressive pieces of jewelry that have always been popular. Precious gems like rubies, emeralds, sapphires or corals and pearls and even aquamarine and blue topaz add interesting highlights of yellow, white, red, green, blue.
Coloured diamond pendants and necklaces are valuable, beautiful and rare. Fancy-coloured diamonds come in vivid hues like yellow, pink, blue and black. The less expensive coloured diamonds are champagne, cognac and brown diamonds. Pendants with these are exquisite and classy.
The 4Cs of diamond grading
No account about diamond necklaces is complete without mentioning the 4Cs of diamond grading. You must be aware of this when buying natural or lab-created diamonds. Always check if your diamond jewelry comes with a certificate of authenticity.
By global standards, the value of a diamond is determined by its Colour, Cut, Clarity, and Carat Weight.
Colour: White diamonds can range from colourless to a mild hue of brown. There are an array of coloured diamonds as well. The more vivid the colour the higher its value.
The cut or facets of a diamond determine its fire and brilliance. Popular diamond cuts are round brilliant, princess, cushion, emerald, oval, pear, baguette, and marquise.
Clarity refers to the presence or absence of inclusions in the diamond; the more minor and fewer the inclusions, the more valuable the diamond.
The weight of a diamond is measured in carats; the gem's value increases with its weight.
