Diamond Pendants you should be wearing this Valentine’s

Diamond Pendants you should be wearing this Valentine’s

January 09 2023

Pendants are a beautiful accessory that comes in many shapes and sizes! Make sure you’re wearing the best jewellery this Valentine’s day from our pendant selection at Quality Diamonds.


Simple necklaces made from objects like shells and teeth, acting as pendants, are a form of jewellery adopted by early cultures from all around the world. From the fourteenth and fifteenth centuries to the sixteenth and early seventeenth centuries, set gemstones and heavy gold chain necklaces with pendants were high in fashion: at the time they were ways to flaunt wealth and social status. Wearing necklaces that followed the style of necklines was a huge trend - the lower the neckline, the lower and more detailed necklaces were with their pendants which helped enhance outfits. They were also worn by men as a status symbol from the fifteenth through the seventeenth centuries. 

Current Fashion

Our most popular pendants tend to be round solitaires and halo pendants with the central stone being bigger. For example, a Round Brilliant Anita Diamond Pendant is minimalistic and would look simple yet beautiful sat just below the dip in your neck. An Emerald Cut Halo Bijou Diamond Pendant with a larger central stone would look stunning on a long chain and short chain.

A current trend in necklaces is stacking, this can range from having just two necklaces up to six or even seven. Here you could stack a necklace that contains a diamond pendant, or gemstone of your choice. 

Of course, there are options for Bespoke Pendants if you are looking to buy something new, maybe to layer up with necklaces you already own. At Quality Diamonds we offer many types of gemstones, not just diamonds! If you don’t want something new but want to repurpose a gemstone from jewellery that is outdated, we can incorporate that too - making it more personal and meaningful to you.

Diamond Pendant Ideas

Round Brilliant Amia Diamond Pendant in 18K Yellow Gold

This setting has four claws sitting at its compass points making the stone look more rounded. Amia is the French word for lovable, which this pendant definitely is.

Round Brilliant Anita Diamond Pendant in Platinum

Anita is inspired by the Italian word for Grace, the two claws on this setting allow a great amount of light to enter the diamond and maximise sparkle.

Emerald Bijou Diamond Pendant in 18K Rose Gold

Bijou is inspired by the French word for Jewel, the halo setting is set with lots of smaller diamonds - including the diamond set bail - allowing the pendant to glisten.

Princess Mirabelle Diamond Pendant in 18K Yellow Gold

Mirabelle is inspired by the French word for Wonderfall, this setting is very minimalistic. The looped bail to hold the setting in place is simple yet effective.

Heart Bijou Halo Diamond Pendant in Platinum

This Heart cut Bijou is quite trendy amongst celebrities around this time of the year, the halo setting allows the central diamond to give the illusion of appearing bigger.

Though these Pendants are absolutely stunning, don’t forget we have a wide range of them and we do offer bespoke!
