Imagine yourself in a picture-perfect stunning attire, killer heels and an amazing diamond necklace wrapped around your neck. There is nothing that compares to the marvelous beauty of a diamond necklace. When paired with a diamond ring, it makes a perfect addition to every outfit, from chic – casual to formal attires. With thousands of styles and designs available, it is quite easy to find a perfect diamond necklace to match your preferences.


When it comes to diamond pendants, there are myriads of styles and designs available, including figurines, initials, words, geometrical shapes and religious symbols. The material and length of the necklace also matters. Diamonds interwoven in Gold, Silver or Platinum chains enhance the overall beauty of the jewellery itself.


Obviously, cut is one of the most important factors to consider when shopping for a diamond necklace. Cut is the style of the diamond and is influenced by proportion, symmetry, polish and shine. The most common diamond cut styles are

  • Round
  • Radiant
  • Princess
  • Heart
  • Pear
  • Cushion
  • Oval
  • Emerald

Combination of Gemstones

The brilliance of a precisely cut diamond can be accentuated by pairing it up with the natural hues of gemstones such as rubies, emerald and amethyst. There are limitless options available when combining gemstones and diamonds. You can either have a cluster of diamonds with one gemstone or a large diamond surrounded by several small gemstones.

Size of Diamonds

The size and number of diamonds used in the necklace also matters a lot. Many diamond necklaces use both small and large sized diamonds to add visual appeal and interest. Just imagine a diamond pendant design with a single large black diamond and a cluster of smaller stones surrounding it. Won’t it look stunning around your neck? We bet it would!


There are several factors that affect the price of a diamond necklace.

  • Quality of the diamond
  • Size of the diamond
  • Intricacy of the design
  • Type of metal used
  • Number of diamonds used
  • Combination of gemstones
  • Workmanship
