Choosing a Diamond Necklace: Are You the Pendant or the Choker Type?
There are several different types of diamond necklaces:
Diamondpendants: pendants are small setting containing a diamond (or several diamonds) that hangs from a chain. Pendants can be simple or intricate, and include a variety of shapes, styles and sizes. One popular type of pendant is the heart pendant – a heart shaped pendant filled with multiple stones, which is playful and romantic.
Chokersandcollars: chokers and collars are necklaces usually worn at very formal occasions, and accompany low cut dresses so they can stand out better. They usually contain multiple stones.
Truediamondnecklaces: contain diamonds all the way around the necklace, not just in a pendant hanging from them. Due to the number of stones they contain, they tend to be more expensive than the types of diamond necklaces. They're very glittery and showy, and due to their price, they're usually only seen on celebrities and millionaires.
