The most popular chain styles are also the simplest ones. These include curb, Figaro, box, and wheat. These more understated chain styles highlight the pendant better than intricately-designed chains. Moreover, intricately-styled chains, such as herringbone and snake chains, are not as popular because they are comparatively expensive and too delicate to carry pendants.
If you are looking for a men's or women's diamond pendant charm that is sized to wear daily, choose one between 0.25 ct and 1.0 ct. If you want to save on cash for your diamonds, look for diamonds that are slightly lower than 1.0 ct. For instance, instead of buying a one-carat diamond for your pendant, you can buy one in the 0.95 to 0.99 ct range.
While at home, you can make this simple observation to check if your diamond is real. Make a dot on a piece of paper and lay the stone on the dot with the flat side lying down. Look down onto the paper through the pointed end of the diamond. The stone is fake if you see a circular reflection inside the diamond. However, a reputable gemologist or jeweler can help verify if a diamond is genuine. You can drop by our store to help us check your diamond, especially if you plan to sell it.
You can put a men's or women's diamond pendant charm on any chain. However, please note that specific chain designs, especially the most intricate styles, may not be able to carry pendants without the risk of breaking. Box chains, cable chains, curb chains, wheat chains, and Figaro chains are stylish and robust chain styles that can carry most pendant sizes available. You need to adjust the width if you opt for heavier pendants.
The part of the pendant that holds the pendant to a chain is called bail, or bale. The most popular types of bails are the lobster claw, fancy clasps, or a spring-ring. Among bail styles, the lobster claw and spring ring clasps are the most preferred because they can fit with most designs.
