A pendant is a truly a thoughtful token of love or friendship, making an excellent idea for a meaningful gift. Are you seeking a unique gift for someone special this holiday season? Recognize their style and the motifs that they like, or convey a meaningful message through the material, shape, and design of a pendant necklace. It’s a piece of jewelry that will make them think of you every single time they put it on.
Not only are pendant necklaces thoughtful, they are also one of the most versatile accessories a person can own. They are basic enough to wear every day, to layer with other jewelry, or to add as a special memory. Here, you’ll find some of our favorite pendant necklaces at Lux Bond & Green. From fancy to affordable, classic to contemporary, you’re sure to find the right one for your loved one.
Modern yellow or white gold
Smooth and shiny, delicate, geometric—here are some perfect everyday numbers. Lux Bond & Green’s Moderno collection features stunning pendant jewelry in warm, 14k yellow gold shapes like our horseshoe, open rose, star, and heart. You’ll also find asymmetrical whimsy from Moderno, in pieces like this triple circle pendant on a 14k yellow gold chain. Looking for a similar aesthetic in 14k white gold? Check out Delicato pendant necklaces like the Flower Diamond Pendant, or the Clover Diamond Pendant.
Long, bolo-style pendant necklaces
There’s something effortlessly boho about a bolo pendant necklace. Rooted in Western American style, this necklace is like a cowboy’s necktie, for when getting dressed up means your best boots and flannel. Traditionally made of metal-tipped leather clasped in front with a stone pendant, today’s contemporary designs riff off this Y-shaped silhouette. Bolo necklaces like the following make it easy to add some flair to any casual outfit. This sapphire and diamond pendant on a 22”, 14k white gold chain hits this look right on the head, with double dangling tassels. Other looks from John Hardy – like the 25” hammered spear necklace with black sapphire and spinel drops, and a yellow gold clasp, or the 32” sterling silver slider necklace with yellow gold baubles at the bottom drop and clasp – are perfect for today’s upscale urban cowgirls.
The natural choice: Pearls
Solitary pearls have long held a distinct, old-world allure. Their iridescent surface and organic shape make them a romantic gift, as well as a popular choice to wear for formal occasions. Our favorite pearl pendant necklaces come from the best, the “father” of pearls, Mikimoto. Pearls in bright white tones, cream, pink, gray, black, and everything in between are available at Lux Bond & Green, to suit every taste. From the warm-tone golden pearl pendant with diamonds on an 18k yellow gold chain, to the Tahitian black pearl pendant with diamonds on an 18k gold chain, to the well-loved white pearl pendant with an 18k white gold chain strung through its center—Mikimoto pearls have been the cherry on top of women’s best outfits since 1893.
Glam it up with gemstone pendants
Who doesn’t want to add a little color to their life? Gemstone pendant necklaces from Jane Taylor or IPPOLITA make for a vibrant selection. For instance, the Cirque Petite pendant in 14k rose gold, with a geometric cluster of rhodolite garnet, pink tourmaline, and diamonds, and the Nova Gemstone pendant necklace, with turquoise beads clustered on an 18k yellow gold chain, are both bright, spirited options. Going for even more glam? We suggest Ponte Vecchio’s stunning sapphire and diamond pendant, which is made in Florence, Italy or Alex Sepkus’ soft mosaic pendent with seven sapphires in pink and orange. For the friend or lover who appreciates the beauty of designer gemstone pendants, go sparkly for a winning gift.
Luxurious, diamond pendant necklaces
Go ahead, take a dive into diamond pendants. Lux Bond & Green specializes in luxury, after all, and diamond, designer pendant necklaces are one of our top choices for a special occasion gift. Whether that’s a wedding anniversary or coming-of-age milestone like a Quinceañera, give her something that she will treasure from that day forward, for her whole life.
From favorite Italian designer and friend Roberto Coin, the Princess Flower Diamond Pendant (in 18k yellow gold or in 18k white gold) is a gorgeous, heirloom-worthy pendant necklace. The Joy Diamond Pendant, a classic style from Hearts on Fire (and the ultimate wedding accessory), features round diamonds in a halo around the centerpiece diamond, set in 18k white gold. For the biggest smile you’ve ever seen, gift this 18k white and rose gold necklace, featuring pink and white diamonds in an elegant haloed teardrop style. Making her feel very special is easy with designer diamond pendant necklaces.
Charming sterling silver
Sweet sterling charms are available at Lux Bond & Green, in an incredible array of shapes and motifs. Here, you will find pendant necklaces from Gucci, such as the Feline Head, as well as little autograph pendant letters (“m” for example) from Alex Woo. You will also find sterling silver birthstone pendant necklaces, such as peridot or amethyst, or pendant necklaces with sweet motifs like a lucky little elephant, or lockets in heart and oval shapes. Charm pendant necklaces are one of the best ways to show how well you pay attention, by being able to give a shape you know is symbolic to her. A cross? A star of David? A monogram? You know what she likes, and sterling silver charms can be as casual as a “thinking-of-you” gift, or for a birthday.
Pendant necklaces let you be expressive and show off your personality. Donning different styles for daytime, nighttime, work, play, date night, visit-to-Grandma’s— whatever the occasion, a pendant necklace can be demure, flirtatious, laid-back, or fashion-forward. It’s fun to collect a variety, and to mix them up on the regular. Designer pendant necklaces make great gifts for any women in your life. We hope that you browse the styles noted here, online, and at your local Lux Bond & Green!
