Choosing a pendant necklace is the easiest jewellery purchase you will ever make because it’s usually hard to get wrong. Because they hang down on your neck you don’t need a perfect fit like with a ring and the chain lengths usually vary by about 5cm which has only a subtle difference in where it will sit on your neck. If you’re just starting out, you can achieve a really great look by starting with a single pendant necklace in a classic shape, we recommend the Fallen Angel Medallion Pendant as a great versatile pendant.
When looking for a pendant necklace, start with the design. The design is going to be the main factor, is it something that you connect with? Does it fit well in your overall style and personality? Many of our pendant designs have a theme and story behind the design, either based on an idea, tattoo designs or traditional art. Check out the Death’s Cupid Pendant Necklace for one of our favourites.
Chain length and chain style
Choosing a chain length depends on your body type and height, the taller you are the longer the chain will need to be and vice versa, we include photo examples in our size guide to help you get an idea of where the pendant will sit with the different lengths on various body types. Next is the chain style, there are many different styles that all have a distinctive look, we offer 2mm Curb Chain, 2.9mm Figaro Chain, 3mm Cable Chain, 4mm Rope Chain & 4.5mm Cable Chain as the most common chain styles.
