What is unique about diamond necklaces
Diamonds necklaces are valuable items, cherished and worn with pride and pleasure. Diamonds are the hardest, naturally occurring substance that we know, which accounts for the famous saying, “Diamonds are forever”, was coined. Fine diamond necklaces vary in lengths and are made of precious metals such as gold and silver and may be crafted in plain or elaborate designs, set with cut and facetted natural or lab grown diamonds.
Types of diamond necklaces
Diamond necklaces vary in style, setting, and price. While there are many look-alike diamond necklaces, nothing can replace a “real” diamond necklace.
Diamond necklaces by material
You are sure to find here, a diamond necklace that grabs your attention. Whether it is a simple gold or silver chain with a floating diamond, a letter or number-pendant set with diamonds, a dressy piece for formal occasions, or a classically elegant one for everyday use—the choice is yours.
Gold and diamond necklaces
Diamond necklaces are best made in 18k gold, for its durable and long lasting features. 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 diamond necklace if you prefer an icy brilliance and a subtler look.
Silver and 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. Silver diamond necklaces are usually rhodium plated to prevent the tarnishing of the silver setting.
Diamond necklaces designs
Diamond necklaces are designed in many styles ranging from simple solitaire necklace, floating diamond necklaces and pendants to elaborate styles. Diamond necklaces are also designed in exciting combinations with other precious and colourful gemstones.

A diamond pendant necklace comprises a gold chain with a diamond pendant. These are usually small diamond necklaces focusing on the pendant and the diamonds set in it.
A popular design is a circle diamond pendant necklace; the pendant is circular and set with a continuous row of diamonds.
Also popular are diamond heart necklaces with pendants shaped like hearts, which symbolise love. Such pendants could be solid hearts, pave-set with diamonds, or an open-heart pendant through which you can thread the necklace chain.
Necklaces with diamond letter pendants or initial diamond necklaces are also on-trend and preferred by many women and men who like personalised jewelry.
Solitaire diamond necklace and floating diamond necklace
A necklace with a single diamond is also called a solitaire diamond necklace. The solitaire diamond pendant in a diamond necklace may be small or large. A single diamond pendant on a fine gold chain is also called a floating diamond because it gives an illusion of the diamond “floating”.
Diamond circle necklace
Diamond circle necklaces, also called tennis diamond necklaces, symbolise eternity and steadfast love. They feature a continuous row of diamonds and fasten with a hook or clasp.
Diamond choker necklace
A diamond choker necklace is short and sits just above your collarbone. It is an impressive piece of diamond jewelry that may have a single or many rows of diamonds. The more elaborately designed choker styles are best worn for formal occasions.
Diamond and pearl necklace
